In an Aug. 14 interview on Palestinian television, Muhsen said Fatah
severed all ties to Dahlan. Muhsen said Dahlan's appeal was deemed
unacceptabl, Middle East Newsline reportede.
"The appeal presented by Dahalan did not complete the legal conditions,
since it surpassed the time limit granted, which is 14 days after the
appeal," Muhsen said. "In addition, he did not address the movement's
president or the Central Committee. but addressed the movement's secretary.
So the appeal was not acceptable."
For the first time, a leading Fatah member outlined the charges that led
to Dahlan's dismissal. Muhsen said Dahlan was determined to have ordered the
killings of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip until the Hamas takeover in 2007.
"We have witnesses stating that most of the killing operations carried
out in Gaza were done by the security services led by Dahlan," Muhsen said.
"We have a number of cases filed by the families of the murdered."
Dahlan, twice expelled from the West Bank in less than a year, was also
accused of plotting a coup to overthrow PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
The PA has relayed a warrant for Dahlan's arrest with Interpol on charges
that also included embezzlement and arms trafficking.
"The Central Committee terminated all that concerns him inside the
movement by expelling him and now Dahlan's accusation file is being referred
to the attorney general or to a specialized judicial body for
consideration," Muhsen said. "Whoever is accused will be called to appear in
front of the Palestinian law through Interpol."
