MADRID (Reuters) – Spain has demanded that Israel improve the conditions of Spanish citizen Juana Ruiz who was detained there almost two weeks ago without charge, Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya said on Tuesday.

“We are in an intensive dialogue with Israeli authorities” about the case, Laya told reporters after a weekly cabinet meeting, adding that her ministry would continue to provide the maximum possible support.

“We hope the investigation concludes soon so this citizen can find out of what she is accused of, if she is accused of anything,” she said.
