Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories: Starved of justice: Palestinians detained without trial by Israel
More than 300 Palestinians are held by Israel as administrative detainees, without prospect of a trial for any criminal offence. Detention without trial continues as it has for decades. The Israeli authorities have claimed that administrative detention is used exceptionally against people who pose a great danger to security. In practice, they have employed it against thousands of people, including some who should never have been arrested. This report examines the violations associated with administrative detention.
