HCJ 9733/03 - HaMoked: Center for the Defence of the Individual v. The State of Israel et al. Decision
Judgment | 9733/03 | 14.11.2004
The registrar of the Supreme Court ruled that the additional particulars the state must provide are limited to the number of detainees being held in Facility 1391 from the time it was established, the time each detainee was held there (without giving personal information about the detainees), and whether the existing procedures in the facility are identical or similar to those in other army facilities. In his opinion, these matters alone are connected to the petitioner’s contention currently under review, whereby there is no basis in law, or justification, to keep the facility secret.
