Freih Abu Medien, a member of Fateh, was minister of justice from 1998 until the June 2002 cabinet reshuffle.

Abu Medien was born in Gaza in 1944 to a family from Beersheba where his grandfather was mayor. He is a trained lawyer and obtained a law degree from Alexandria University in Egypt in 1971. He was a member of various Palestinian councils and associations. He was elected chairman of the Gaza Bar Association between 1989 and 1994. He was a member of the Palestinian delegation to the Madrid process and the pro-Fateh Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) member for Deir al-Balah.
