Palestinian poet Dareen Tatour was convicted by an Israeli court in Nazareth of “incitement to violence” for a poem she wrote. She spent a total of THREE years under house arrest and in prison, between October 2015 and September 2018. On December 25th, 2018 she stood before the court once again, appealing against her verdict.
Dareen’s appeal was partially successful, in having one of the multiple convictions quashed by the same Nazareth District Court which originally convicted her. On July 1st 2019, The Israeli State has appealed against the verdict of Dareen’s appeal.
