Abstract

This Report of a three person mission of the International Commission of Jurists on the Israeli Military Court System used in the Occupied West Bank and Gaza during 1989 identifies the military court system as well as conclusions, concerns, and recommendations of the mission with respect to a number of areas – including arrests; interrogation; confessions; charges; attorney notice, visits and time to prepare for the defense; family visits; review and dismissal by the prosecutor; bail; pleas; sentencing on guilty pleas; trial; and review. Several of the areas addressed are still of general concern under international law, especially with respect to human rights to due process and attorney visits with clients and adequate time and facilities for preparation of a defense.

Keywords: appeal, attorney, bail, confession, defense, due process, evidence, Gaza, Geneva Convention, guilty plea, human right, Israel, law of war, military court, notice, review, time to prepare, visits, West Bank
