NNA - The undersigned human rights institutions expressed, in this joint statement, today great concern about the challenge of the French authorities to the law and disrespect of the human rights values, charter, and principles, over the continued detention of Lebanese George Ibrahim Abdallah, detained in France since October 24, 1984.

On January 10th, 2013, the French judiciary issued a ruling to release him under the condition of deporting him from French territory, but the French authorities are still holding Abdullah at the request of the U.S. administration without announcing any reasons or details.

The undersigned organizations demand the immediate release of George Ibrahim Abdallah unconditionally, out of respect for the principle to respect the provisions of customary justice first, and not to be detained rights without legal justification, and believe that the continued detention constitutes a violation of France's International obligations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, in which France was one of States Parties, specifically materials (9, 14, 19, 21 and 22) , This is also a clear violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the United Nations on December 10th, 1948, and specifically in the materials (3, 5, 7 and 9).

We would also like to remind the French authorities that this action contradicts with the Committee's recommendations on human rights in its eighty-fourth cycle, July 2005, specifically the sixth paragraph on violating International Covenant provisions about Political and civil Rights, and that the arrest violates the provisions of human rights set forth in the major human rights written documents and that France pledged to protect and apply, as there is no legal basis for the deprivation of liberty under any justification.

We also call for the Lebanese government to communicate with the French government for the release of the detainees George Ibrahim Abdullah being a Lebanese citizen, and the responsibility of the Lebanese state is to protect the rights of its citizens wherever they are in the world.

The undersigned organizations also expresses concern about the silence of most international and regional actors about the continual detention of George Ibrahim Abdullah by the French authorities, demanding urgent and effective action to contribute to his release.
