Lawyers boycott Israeli court over 'humiliating' search procedures

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Lawyers representing Palestinian prisoners detained by Israel refused to appear in the Salem court in northern Israel on Monday, the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners’ Affairs said.

The committee said that the lawyers were protesting the “humiliating” search procedures undertaken against them by the Israel Prison Service (IPS).

Lawyers have regularly boycotted Israeli courts over the years, most recently during a 40-day mass prisoner hunger strike, whether over the severe and sometimes deadly mistreatment of Palestinian prisoners or over restricted access to court proceedings.

In 2012, lawyers boycotted the Salem court over similar complaints of harassing searches.
