Torture & abuse under interrogation

Torture & abuse under interrogation

Freedom from torture and abuse is an inalienable human right. It may not be violated under any circumstance. In 1999, Israel’s High Court of Justice ruled that the Israel Security Agency [ISA, the domestic intelligence agency] may not use physical coercion as an investigatory tactic, and prohibited various measures habitually employed by ISA personnel in interrogating Palestinians. Since then, reports of torture and abuse of Palestinians under interrogation have decreased significantly. Nonetheless, other unacceptable methods of interrogation – particularly the employment of harsh conditions of incarceration – still persist.
