Detentions in Palestine

A top Shin Bet official on Monday asked the Knesset to extend a temporary order that allows the security service to detain Palestinian prisoners for four days without a hearing.

 

“The security situation in Israel has not changed over the past three years and there is therefore a need to extend the temporary order,” the Shin Bet’s head of investigations told the Knesset’s legislative committee.

 

The investigations chief also asked the committee to restore Section 5 of the temporary legislation, which was struck down by the High Court and had allowed the Shin Bet to hold hearings on prolonging detention without the suspect being present.
