Dozens of legal experts appeal to MAG over conscientious objector

Dozens of lecturers from the academic and clinical faculties of Israeli law schools have sent an urgent letter to military advocate-general Sharon Afek saying conscientious objector Tair Kaminer’s imprisonment is not proportionate.

In January, Kaminer, 19, from Tel Aviv, refused to enlist in the army, calling it “an occupying force that oppresses the Palestinian people.” She is currently serving her sixth prison sentence, at the end of which she will have served a total of 170 days in prison – the longest ever served by a female Israeli conscientious objector.
