Administrative Detention in the occupied Palestinian territory - A Legal Analysis Report, July 2010 update

Administrative detention is a procedure under which detainees are held
without charge or trial. No charges are filed, and there is no intention of
bringing a detainee to trial. In Israel, such detention can be renewed indefinitely. In that context, this report examines Israel’s policy of administrative detention in view of general principles of international law governing detention in general and administrative detention in particular, as well as provisions set out in Israeli law. While Israel claims to be abiding by
such principles, this report shows that, in practice, Israel severely violates every one of these principles.
