DJ Sama was released on bail

Palestinian DJ Sama’ Abdulhadi has been released on bail after being detained for eight days for performing near a West Bank mosque.
Abdulhadi has now been released from the Jericho jail in which she was held on bail.

She is not allowed to travel outside of Palestine and is subject to further investigation on the charges of desecrating a holy site and religious symbols as well as violating COVID-19 emergency measures.

She could face up to two years imprisonment if she is indicted.
In a statement, Abdulhadi said: “I am safe and well and would like to thank everybody who has spoken out in support of my situation and called for my immediate release.
“I am overwhelmed by the support from my fellow musicians, artists, activists and the entire music community. I want to thank anybody and everybody who has made me feel so supported. At this moment, I just want to spend time with my family.”

The arrest sparked support around the world.

A petition calling for her release has gained over 100,000 signatures at the time of writing.

Thanks to everyone who took part in the support.
