Amnesty International is concerned that the draft Prevention of Infiltration Law – 2008 contains provisions which are inconsistent with international human rights treaties to which Israel is a State Party, notably the obligation of non-refoulement found in the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees (Refugee Convention), as well as the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CAT), the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD), and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).
