Administrative detention is a procedure that allows the Israeli military to hold prisoners indefinitely on secret evidence without charging them or allowing them to stand trial. Although international human rights law permits some limited use of administrative detention in emergency situations, in practice, Israel routinely uses it in violation of these strict parameters. This video describes the process of administrative detention through interviews with ex-administrative detainees and Addameer director, Sahar Francis.
