Ohio: Court Considers Appeal of Palestinian Activist Rasmea Odeh

HeadlineOct 14, 2015

In the United States, supporters of prominent Palestinian activist Rasmea Odeh are rallying outside an Ohio courthouse today as an appeals court considers arguments she was denied a fair trial. Odeh was convicted of immigration fraud and sentenced to 18 months in prison and deportation from the United States for failing to disclose her conviction on bombing charges by an Israeli military court more than 40 years ago. Odeh says her conviction was obtained through torture and sexual assault in Israeli custody. She has lived in the United States for more than 20 years. Her supporters say she was targeted over her support for Palestinian liberation. Odeh is free on bond pending her appeal.
