CrimFH 7048/97 - Anonymous v. Ministry of Defence Judgment
Judgment | 7048/97 | 12.4.2000
Judgment in a petition by Lebanese citizens who fully served their various prison sentences in Israel but were kept in custody to serve as "bargaining chips" in negotiations for the release of captives or MIA's.

In a majority decision, the court rules that as the only lawful means for detaining the petitioners is administrative detention under the Detentions Law, and as the Detentions Law does not allow for the detention of a person who is not a threat to national security - the petitioners must be released.
