Imprisonment of feminist conscientious objector Idan Halili
Dear Mr Shaul Mofaz, Minister of Defence
I am very concerned about the imprisonment of feminist conscientious objector Idan Halili.
Idan Halili refuses to enlist in the Israeli Army based on her feminist beliefs and conscience. However, she was refused a hearing by the 'Conscience Committee', when she applied for exemption from military service based on reasons of conscience. On 15 November, she was sentenced to 14 days in prison, and she is likely to be reimprisoned after he release on 28 November.
