HCJ 2150/96 - Harizat et al. v. the Attorney General et al. Judgment
Judgment | 2150/96 | 26.3.2002

The HCJ rejects a petition against the state's decision not to criminally prosecute the interrogators of a Palestinian detainee who was tortured during his ISA interrogation and died as a result. The respondents claim was accepted, according to which the ISA interrogators could not have foreseen that shaking the interrogee would result in his death, as this is an uncommon phenomenon. The HCJ avoided deciding on the respondent's claim that there is no proof of a causal relationship between the shaking and the death, because the person or action that caused it cannot be identified. It was decided that this claim does not match precedent, but it is unclear which of the interrogators caused the death. (02) 627 1698   (02) 627 6317
