  Israel upholds administrative detention for 23 Palestinian prisoners

November 21, 2018

  The Israeli military court of Ofer upheld on Wednesday the 
administrative detention of 23 Palestinian prisoners, rights group 

According to the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS), nine prisoners 
from various West Bank towns got six months, 11 got four months, two 
others three months and one two month.

Administrative detention is incarceration without trial or charge, 
alleging that a person plans to commit a future offense. It has no time 
limit, and the evidence on which it is based is not disclosed. Israel 
employs this measure extensively and routinely, and has used it to hold 
thousands of Palestinians for lengthy periods of time.

While detention orders are formally reviewed, this is merely a semblance 
of judicial oversight, as detainees cannot reasonably mount a defense 
against undisclosed allegations. Nevertheless, courts uphold the vast 
majority of orders.
