Palestinian Centre for Human Rights in Gaza has published its 2007 annual report in English. Section two covers Palestinian Violations of
Human Rights and Obstacles to Democratic Reform
A central topic is the split in the executive branch between the President and his caretaker cabinet in the West Bank, and the deposed Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh and his de facto cabinet i Gaza. PCHR is particularly concerned with the effect of the split on the judiciary and the legislative.
PCHR criticizes a number of decisions made by President Mahmoud Abbas after last year’s military takeover by Hamas in Gaza. The PCHR recognizes the legitimacy of the government and its right to have its constitutional powers, but condemns the use of military means and “the employment of ‘Izziddin al-Qassam Brigades in the military showdown and takeover of the security establishment”.
