(1) detention until a hearing before a judge - 24 hours for Jews; up to eight days for Palestinians;


(2) total detention period before indictment - 30 days for Jews, and up to 75 on authority of the Attorney General; up to 180 days for Palestinians;


(3) detention from end of investigation to indictment - 5 days for Jews; 10 days for Palestinians;


(4) detention from indictment until arraignment - 30 days for Jews; up to two years for Palestinians;


(5) detention from arraignment to end of proceedings - 9 months for Jews; up to two years for Palestinians; and


(6) judicial approval of detention extensions if proceedings continue - 3 months for Jews (per a Supreme Court judge); six months for Palestinians (per Military Court of Appeals judge).


In addition, defense lawyers rarely know charges until hearing days. Palestinian children are usually denied bail, and respect for their rights under international law is ignored.


Fourth Geneva's Article 147 requires fair trials, holding those responsible for denying them criminally liable.
