Maan report details Israel’s ‘Endemic impunity’ ~ Ramona Wadi, MEMO.
A report by Maan Development Centre, titled ‘Endemic Impunity – Israeli violations of international law in the Jordan Valley’ (2013) makes use of legal debate and Israeli manipulation of international law to avoid accountability for its actions against Palestinians. Departing from legal frameworks which Israel regularly disregards in order to impose its institutional and degrading occupation structure, the report portrays ways through which basic rights have been denied throughout decades of occupation, supported by laws which Israel enacted to ensure the dependence of Palestinian people and empower the settler-colonial agenda.
Maan research shows that Israel is in breach of various legislations pertaining to human rights, including Hague Regulations, the Fourth Geneva Convention, International Customary Law, International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination.
