Canadian activist Jaggi Singh was ambushed and forced into an 
unmarked vehicle and taken to an unknown location by 3 Israelis 
wearing plain clothes today when he arrived for a pre-arranged visit 
with a friend in West Jerusalem. 

His friend, `Jonathan', released this report:

"Jaggi was supposed to visit me this evening,
after spending the day at Yad Vashem.  He called
me to let me know that he would arrive at my house
in 15 minutes.  His arrival was somewhat eventful.
I heard him yelling, and ran out to see three
people in plain-clothes stuffing him into a car,
which had been parked just outside my house.  They
showed me police badges, refused to give their names,
and drove a car with plates 47-213-15.

I will call a lawyer."

His attorney, Shamlai Leibovitch, and the Canadian Consulate have 
been contacted.

Jaggi arrived at  Ben Gurion Airport on December 14th  and was 
initially refused entry by Israeli officials for `security reasons'. 
His attorney took his case to court and Jaggi was eventually given a 
one week visa with the condition that he not enter the occupied 
territories. 

Jaggi is from Montreal, Canada and traveled to the occupied 
territories to write about the realities of the Israeli occupation 
of Palestine. Jaggi is well known in Canada and abroad for speaking 
out against injustice in the many forms it takes.
