2017-10-04 Israel: The bloggers and the vengeful judges
Appeal was filed in the Israeli Supreme Court, originating in the criminal prosecution of Israeli bloggers Lori Shem-Tov and Moti Leybel. The two lead protest against corruption of the family courts. In particular -- the taking of children from their biological parents, especially the poor. Both have been detained over the past 7 months under unprecedented harsh and abusive conditions. The Appeal raises the question: "Is a court permitted, in a criminal process, to serve a person documents with the intention that the recipient accept their authority as valid court decisions and judgments, and at the same time hold the authenticity of the same records as valid court records a riddle?" The circumstances that are documented in the Appeal pose clear and present danger to Liberty and fundamental Human Rights of all residents of the State of Israel.
