2015-16 Session
That this House notes that Military Court Watch has lodged a submission with the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention relating to the detention and transfer of Palestinian minors from the West Bank to prisons located inside Israel in violation of both the Fourth Geneva Convention and the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court; further notes that this practice, which is classified under international law as a war crime, affects between 7,000 to 8,000 Palestinians each year, including minors, according to evidence provided by the Israeli Prison Service; and calls on the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention to contest the practice in a manner consistent with its jurisdiction and mandate to ensure that relevant international standards and relevant international legal instruments accepted by both Israel and Palestine as signatories to the Fourth Geneva Convention are fully and timeously addressed.
