Limit on prison visits to clients infuriates lawyers

Israel Bar Association president Efi Naveh on Wednesday threatened to take the Prisons Service to the High Court of Justice if it does not back off announced changes in policy to limit visits by defense lawyers to client prisoners.

Naveh objected to the service issuing the regulations on Sunday without coordinating the issue with the Bar Association.

He said that the lawyers association would “weigh all necessary measures for defending the professional interests of its members, the rights of its clients and the rights of prisoners.”
