Israel imprisons two Eritrean immigrants without trial
A new procedure allows the state to imprison illegal immigrants indefinitely even if there is no evidence against them or the case has been closed. Neither the police nor the Immigration Authority is willing to take responsibility.
Three months ago, a woman filed a rape complaint at a local police station. The man she accused was locked up immediately. When the woman returned to the police station to confess that the accusation had been false, she was arrested as well. Both the woman, who is pregnant, and the man against whom she filed a false complaint have spent the past three months in prison.
