article imageFreed in Shalit deal - Hamas terrorist may return to Israeli jail

By Lesley Lanir     Feb 8, 2012 in Crime
A prisoner, classed as a terrorist by Israel, who was set free in the October 2011 Gilad Shalit exchange deal, may be sent back to jail for 27 years following his arrest.
Israel's Ynet news reports that Ayman Sharouna, 36, was released in October in the first part of the Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange set up to release Shalit from spending close to 2000 days in Hamas captivity. Sharouna is suspected of "engaging in terror-related activity" and could be sent back to prison to serve the remainder of his 38 year sentence.
Sharouna was arrested last week in the West Bank town of Dura after Israeli intelligence discovered he has rejoined Hamas. According to his release conditions being a member of Hamas and is as Ynet quotes a "blatant violation of the terms of his release."
Israeli authorities stipulated that any freed convict who resumes terror activity is to be arrested and forced to serve the rest of his original sentence.

Originally, Sharouna was sentenced to 38 years in Israeli prison for his involvement in a terror attack in Beersheba in 2002, as well as further attacks throughout the second intifada.
Ynet report that a three-judge panel is expected to convene next week to discuss Sharouna's punishment.
