Alleged Investigation: The Failure of Investigations Into Offenses Committed by IDF Soldiers Against Palestinians
Reports | 1.8.2011

A report by Yesh Din uncovering the systematic flaws which prevent the success of MPCID investigations into offences committed by soldiers against Palestinians. Consequently, 96.5% of complaints filed are closed without indictments. The report is based on Yesh Din's monitoring of 192 complaints and analysis of dozens of investigation files, covering diverse offences against Palestinians and their property, including killing and injury, theft and other property damage, and abuse of detainees. The report indicates that the reasons for the failure of investigations include the fact that an operational debriefing is requisite for the opening of a criminal investigation, the lack of MPCID bases in the West Bank, failure to question key witnesses, and professional failings and delays in MPICD investigations.
