The Palestinian Authority will charge 14 members of its security forces for allegedly beating opposition activist Nizar Banat to death in June, a spokesperson for the forces said on Sunday. “The investigations have concluded, and the military prosecutors decided to charge all the officers and forces who participated in apprehending Nizar Banat,” PA security services spokesperson Talal Dweikat said, as quoted by Times of Israel.

The 14 alleged perpetrators will be charged with fatally beating Banat, under PA military law, said Dweikat. Banat, one of the fiercest opponents of PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas, died as PA officials attempted to arrest him. A post-mortem found he had been beaten on the head, chest, neck, legs and hands, with less than an hour elapsing between his arrest and his death.
