The Brazilian-Palestinian Islam Hasan Jamil Hamed has been kept under arrest in a Palestine prison since 2010. The Brazilian government has made efforts for his release since his sentence expired in September 2013.
In recent days, reiterated representations were made to the Palestinian and Israeli authorities in Brasilia and in those countries for the release and granting of safe conduct to the Brazilian national so that he should be repatriated to Brazil. The Brazilian government regrets that the negotiations have not to this date yielded a positive response from the Palestinian and Israeli governments.
Officials from Brazil's Representative Office in Palestine have conducted regular visits to provide consular assistance to the Brazilian and evaluate his health status.
