HCJ 6138/10 - HaMoked: Center for the Defence of the Individual v. Attorney General Petition for Order Nisi
Court Documents | 6138/10 | 19.8.2010
Petition by HaMoked to instruct the Attorney General to examine complaints of torture during ISA interrogations in an efficient and timely manner and to formulate a procedure for such examination, ascertaining, inter alia, that complaints are not ignored. HaMoked recalls that no one is above the law and that, under the Criminal Procedural Code, the police has an obligation to investigate any suspected crime. HaMoked notes that customary international law strictly prohibits torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment and that Israeli law also recognizes this ban, derived of the constitutional right to physical and mental integrity and to dignity.
