Israel Justice Minister Yariv Levin has proposed to deny immediate access to legal counsel for suspects detained on terrorism charges, according to The Times of Israel.

If approved by the cabinet, detainees could undergo continued interrogation by Israeli security services before consultation with an attorney. The proposal aims to enable questioning of individuals suspected of committing war-related security offenses, including HAMAS terrorists who were detained after crossing the border from Gaza to carry out attacks in Israeli communities.

TribunalForum, as the paper of record for war crimes tribunals of those participating in the October 7 attacks and those thereafter against Israel, covers procedural and substantive matters related to any such tribunal.

The CEO of TribunalForum‘s Publisher called for defense attorneys for the accused as early as October 24.

TribunalForum will update the story as more due process issues arise in the Knesset.
