Governor-Ordered Detentions

The right to personal freedom is enshrined in the Palestinian Basic Law and confirmed by the international conventions, which the State of Palestine acceded to without reservation. Any restrictions on this right must be in accordance with the law. In reference of recognised guarantees, a regulation that restricts the right to personal freedom must be consistent with the Basic Law and international conventions. Detention or arrest of any person in contravention of these guarantees is arbitrary and considered a constitutional crime. As characterised by the Basic Law, this crime involves an abuse of the detainee’s personal freedom.
