KIEV - The Palestinian ambassador in Ukraine on Thursday denied that a Palestinian man who went missing in Ukraine and is now being held in an Israeli jail was a member of Hamas.

The family of engineer Dirar Abu Sisi, who managed the main power plant in Hamas-ruled Gaza, says he was abducted by Israeli agents on board a train last month and spirited away to Israel.

Mohammed Al-Assad, the Palestinian envoy in Ukraine, told a news conference in Kiev on Thursday: "He was not a member of any organisation".

Describing Abu Sisi's disappearance as a "terrible act of piracy", Al-Assad urged Ukrainian authorities to put pressure on Israel to ensure his safe return to Ukraine.
