GSS detained minors still under order not to meet with attorneys

Tuesday, January 1, 2019, 16:55 On the afternoon of Tuesday, January 1, the GSS extended until Friday, January 4, the order preventing the three minors detained on Sunday, December 30 from meeting with an attorney. The minors have been interrogated, in violation of the Youth Law without the presence of their parents, and their remand has been extended until Sunday, January 6. The detained minors have not met with either an attorney or their parents since their detention. Honenu Attorney Adi Keidar: “Just now we received an announcement of the extension of the order preventing the minors from meeting with their attorneys. It appears that the GSS has no substantial evidence on the suspects and they need to make use of the unacceptable means of preventing the detainees from meeting with an attorney, completely ignoring the fact that the detainees are minors. We will demand that the court immediately bring the duration of the order to its end and allow us to meet with the minors now.” Attorney Itamar Ben Gvir added, “It turns out that the GSS has not learned a thing. Instead of internalizing this morning’s decision [referring to a judge invalidating confessions] and understanding that there is a limit to their ruses and that there is a red line regarding denial of the right to meet with attorneys and violation of the rights of interrogatees. Also in this case they continue to deprive them of their right to meet with an attorney. “Our main concern is that because there is no attorney present, there is no-one overseeing the treatment and no supervision, and therefore the detainees are being treated in detention facilities in the same way that they were previously treated.”
