Imprisonment of conscientious objector Daniel Tsal
Dear Mr Shaul Mofaz, Minister of Defence
I am very concerned about the imprisonment of conscientious objector Daniel Tsal.
On 25 July, Daniel Tsal was sentenced to his fifth consecutive prison term. I fear that his fate might be similar to the one of Noam Bahat, Adam Maor, Shimri Tsamaret, Haggai Matar, and Matan Kaminer, who were sentenced to 1 year imprisonment after repeated disciplinary sentences. The United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention ruled in November 2003, that his repeated imprisonment was arbitrary (Opinion 24/2003).
