The meeting will hear from a work colleague of 17 years Wessam Hammad as to what she was like, what she represented to the Palestinian people. We shall also have Francesca Albanese, the new UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967 who will address legal issues surrounding the killing and the need for a proper independent investigation.
