The farce of Israeli supreme court

"Israel says it uses the tool of administrative detention in cases when there is not enough evidence to prove guilt in court but the detainee is deemed to present a security danger, or in cases when the exposure of intelligence information in court could be harmful to the country’s security.

In their ruling, the Supreme Court judges said that based on explanations about Mr. Barq’s background and activities they had received from Israeli security agents, including what they described as continued attempts by Mr. Barq to recruit others from the West Bank to his cause, it was necessary to keep him in detention.
