Dozens of judges slam AG for migrant detainment regulation

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein came under fire on Thursday by 52 retired judges and legal academics who criticized the AG's approval of a regulation which enables the prolonged detainment of asylum seekers and migrants from Sudan and Eritrea, even if they are suspected of minor infractions and there are not enough evidence to put them to trial.


"The regulation tramples basic human rights," the legal experts wrote Weinstein in a letter, which also claimed the regulation undermines Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty, and added: "This isn't about a regulation which aim to promote expulsion from Israel but about a regulation which deals with prolonged revoking of freedom."
