The Secretary General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, H.E. Iyad Madani, signed the Robben Island Declaration for the freedom of Marwan Barghouthi and all Palestinian prisoners, and underlined the Organisation’s support for all efforts aiming to release the Palestinian prisoners. The Secretary General referred to several OIC resolutions calling for such a release and denouncing Israeli violations of international law, including in its treatment of Palestinian prisoners. Iyad Madani is the 2nd Secretary General in office to sign the Robben Island Declaration, following a similar support by Nabil El Araby, Secretary General of the League of Arab States, who, since then, joined the International High Level Committee of the Campaign.
