Israeli Law to Bar Lawyers from Visiting Palestinian Prisoners

Israel's legislative council approved a new draft law Monday that would deny Palestinian prisoners the right to visits from their lawyers for a period of one year following detention.

The law, which amends guidelines for the treatment of prisoners, extends to the Israeli courts the power to ban Palestinian prisoners from visits by their legal representatives for an entire year, up significantly to the current law which sets a three week limit.'
