The City of Lyon maintains its invitation to Salah Hamouri who will participate on February 1 in a round table “Regards sur la Palestine” as part of the 30th anniversary of the Oslo agreements.
The Franco-Palestinian lawyer will speak alongside the Palestinian sociologist Abaher El Sakka, the president of Amnesty International France Jean-Claude Samouiller and Benoît Van Keirsbilck, director of Defense for Children International (DEI) Belgium.
Salah Hamouri was imprisoned in Israel between 2005 and 2011 for participating in the attempted assassination of Ovadia Yossef, Israel’s former chief rabbi.
