Submission to the Committee Against Torture on the examination of the fourth periodic report of Israel

The ICJ provides its views to the Committee Against Torture for the consideration of the Fourth Periodic Report of Israel.

In this submission, the ICJ highlights the failure of the Israeli Government to comply with the Committee’s previous recommendations and to that end, incorporate into Israeli domestic legislation a crime of torture as defined in the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (the Convention).
