In a short judgment, the High Court of Justice denied two petitions against the respondents’ decision not to investigate thoroughly complaints of Palestinians who were tortured and held in inhuman conditions during their interrogation in Facility 1391. Despite the severity of the acts, which severely violated the detainees' human rights, and although they were done in a secret and unsupervised facility, and notwithstanding other testimonies describing similar acts, the justices decided not to interfere with the respondents' discretion and not to examine seriously and profoundly the contentions raised in the petitions. The court got the impression that the process in which the decision was made not to open a criminal investigation was proper, and gave great weight to the respondents' contention that the complaints’ credibility was poor.
