Imprisonment of conscientious objector Hadas Amit

Dear Mr Amir Peretz, Minister of Defence

I am very concerned about the imprisonment of conscientious objector Hadas Amit.
Hadas Amit refused to enlist in the Israeli military, and was sentenced to a second consecutive prison term of 10 days on 31 December 2006. She first applied to be exempted from military service due to her conscientious objetion, but was rejected by the Conscience Committee.
In refusing to enlist, Hadas Amit claims her human right to conscientious objection, as guaranteed by Article 18 of the ICCPR. Her imprisonment is a violation of international legal standards.
