HCJ 6138/10 - HaMoked: Center for the Defence of the Individual v. Attorney General Preliminary Response on Behalf of the Respondent
Court Documents | 6138/10 | 9.1.2011
Response to HaMoked’s petition 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. The State apologizes for the significant delay in reaching decisions, but argues that the petition must be rejected since these decisions were ultimately reached and since, on the issue of the procedure, there was no exhaustion of remedies. The State finally notifies that examination of complaints by ISA interrogees will be fully transferred to the Ministry of Justice.
The HCJ dismissed HaMoked's petition to order the attorney general to investigate complaints of torture during interrogation by the Israel Security Agency: the state announced that the authority to examine such interrogees' complaints would be transferred to the Justice Ministry
After a lengthy battle: the responsibility for examining interrogee complaints against ISA interrogators (the Complaints Inspector's position) has been transferred entirely to the Ministry of Justice (02) 627 1698   (02) 627 6317
