Judge Hagain Brenner, of the Tel Aviv District Court dismissed Silman's Complaint and also denied the appeal from his own decision. by State of Israel

Figure 1 : The case of self-immolated, social protest activist Moshe SSilman provided independent confirmation of the findings of the Human Rights Alert (NGO) submission to the Human Rights Council of the United Nations, which detailed large-scale fraud in the courts of the State of Israel, based on evidence derived through data mining methods.  The original complaint in Moshe Silman's case in the Tel Aviv District Court was filed under a case number, which now the Court says never existed, and Judge Hagai Brenner, who dismissed the original complaint also denied the appeal from his own decision.

Barcelona, September 24 - a paper, detailing large-scale fraud in the electronic records of the court of the State of Israel was published by an international computer science journal, following two cycles of anonymous peer-review by international computer-science academic scholars.  [1]

The paper is based on the Human Rights Alert (NGO) submission for the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Human Rights in Israel by the Human Rights Council (HRC) of the United Nations, filed in May 2012 and scheduled for review in January 2013.  The Human Rights Alert submission to the HRC is probably a first --  narrowly focused analysis of the integrity of the electronic record systems of the Israeli courts through data mining research methods.

Supreme Court

On or about March 2002, integrity of the electronic records was seriously compromised in conjunction with the inexplicable death of the Supreme Court's Chief Clerk Shmaryahu Cohen.  Through data mining, hundreds of false and deliberately misleading certifications of decisions of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel have been discovered (e.g., decisions that were purportedly electronically certified by the late Shmaryahu Cohen up to five years after his death).  No valid certification by the current Chief Clerk Sarah Lifschitz, purportedly in office for 10 years, have been discovered, and the Israeli Administration of Courts refused to produce her appointment record in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.    

District Courts  

The publicly accessible records were found invalid, primarily for failure to display visible, reliable digital signatures of judges and authentication records by clerks.  Following the UPR submission, the case of the self-immolated social  protest activist Moshe Silman provided independent confirmation of the findings of the Human Rights Alert UPR submission ( Figure 1 )

Detainees Courts  

The insecure, unsigned decisions of the detainees courts, often created a long time after the dates of the hearings, could not possibly be considered valid legal records.  The detainees' ID numbers show suspicious discontinuities and failure to correlate with time of issuance.  The Ministry of Justice refused to provide the names and physical addresses of the Detainees Courts in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. The results should raise concerns regarding establishment of "black hole" prisons and "field courts" in the State of Israel. 

State Ombudsman's Report 60b (2010)

The report details various blatant violations of the law of the State of Israel, related to development and implementation of the electronic record systems of the courts over the past decade, involving two US-based corporations -- IBM and EDS.  Contracts were awarded with no bidding and with no written specifications; development was conducted with no core supervision by State employees; the systems were accepted by the State client with no independent examination by State employees either, and in the process, the servers, holding the electronic records of the courts, were removed from the custody of the courts, and are now under the custody of a corporation.  The Human Rights Alert submission raised concerns, how a professional audit team, which authored such report, could avoid recognizing the large-scale fraud in the courts' electronic record systems.

Electronic Signature Act (2001)

Data mining of thousands of electronic public legal records of the State of Israel failed to discover a single visible electronic signature. The Ministry of Justice of the State of Israel deliberately undermined the implementation and enforcement of the Act over the past decade, and with it, the integrity of legal and financial records of the State of Israel.  ComSign, LTD, a private corporation, controlled by veterans of the IDF Intelligence Unit 8200, was unlawfully established as the sole certifying authority of electronic signatures in the State of Israel.
