PM Cabinet Secretary: war crimes investigations are the most complex and time-consuming

Speaking at Shurat Hadin’s conference on “Towards a New Law of War,” the Prime Minister’s Cabinet Secretary Avichai Mandelblit said that while he had tremendous respect for the Turkel Commission and the state had implemented many of its recommendations, he rejected its recommendation of setting a maximum time for decisions on whether to indict IDF personnel for alleged war crimes.

Recommendation 10 of the Turkel Commission’s Second Report focusing on how much Israel’s investigations of itself comply with international law said that the IDF should set a time limit by which it will close cases or indict soldiers for alleged war crimes.
