2017-04-17 Roman Zadorov affair and arbitrary arrests in Israel

By now it is clear that Roman Zadorov is held in life imprisonment following framing by police, false prosecution and false conviction in the murder of 13-year-old Tair Rada in 2006. Zadorov is confined with neither lawfully made judgment records nor lawfully made arrest decree. Anybody who cherishes liberty must stand up to corruption of the courts in Israel.

Roman Zadorov - the Ukrainian Mendel Beilis in Israel. The Jew Mendel Beillis was accused a century ago in the murder of a Ukrainian boy. Only following intense international pressure he was released from false arrest and false conviction. Even law professors openly expressed their protest. Prof Boaz Sangero wrote: "Conviction with no real evidence." Prof Mota Kremintzer wrote: "Conduct of the State Prosecution in the Zadorov case is scary ... when you add to it the position of the Supreme Court and conduct of the Attorney General, we are left with a justice system that is primarily busy defending itself." Prof Daniel Friedman wrote: "It is impossible that the Attorney General would say, the State is me. He cannot determine what the law of the land is, to shut up the entire state, and not allow anybody to express his opinion."

Joseph Zernik, PhD  Research Director

Dr Zernik’s core research pertains to e-government, government cyber operations, and their implications relative to human rights, civil society, and democratic institutions.

His work won appreciation in Israel and abroad:

  • Prof Uzzi Ornan - “All power to you! I hope that you see your tremendous efforts reach fruition!”

  • Attorney Avigdor Feldman - “In my opinion you are doing very important work… thank you for your thorough and persistent work”.

  • Prof Amnon Shashua, Mobileye Co-founder - “… very important work”.

  • International experts, as part of anonymous peer-review - “… challenges current thinking in the field”.

Four (4) submissions, authored by Dr Zernik and submitted under Human Rights Alert - NGO, were incorporated into UN Human Rights Council Periodic Reports regarding the US (2010, 2015) and Israel (2013, 2018).

The 2018 High Commissioner’s report on Israel included the following note:

"24. HRA-NGO highlighted the serious deterioration in integrity of law and justice agencies as a consequence of the implementation of e-government systems. It affirmed that the validity and integrity of any legal and judicial records of Israel should be deemed dubious at best."

His research has been presented and published in international academic conferences, including Data Mining (2010), Criminology (2012), E-government (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018), Cyber and Law (2018), Global Security (2019), and closed discussion panels in the Israeli Democracy Institute re: “Cyber Authority Bill” and “Fake Election”.

His work was also cited in a textbook on “Machine Learning”:

"Data mining of government records - particularly records of the justice system (i.e., courts, prisons) - enables the discovery of systemic human rights violations in connection to generation and publication of invalid or fraudulent legal records by various government agencies."

In 2018 he won a thank you note from the bureau of Supreme Court of Israel Presiding Justice for pointing her attention to the inexplicable disclaimer - “subject to editing and phrasing changes” - which appeared on all decisions of the Supreme Court from 2002 to that date.

In 2017 he won the right of public entry to the courtroom in Ayalon Prison complex, where hearings are held in matters pertaining to prisoners and detainees, without the 24 hour advance approval, imposed until then.
