Palestinian lawyers fight Israel military law

Under Israeli military law, freed Palestinian prisoners can be sent back to jail based on secret evidence.

    At least 1,000 Palestinians were freed from prison in 2011, as part of an exchange for Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

    But under Israeli military law they can be sent back to jail based on evidence that they are under no legal obligation to reveal.

    Palestinian lawyers are now fighting the law in the Supreme Court.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
