Israel/OT: Amnesty International Sends Its Second Delegation

News Release Issued by the International Secretariat of Amnesty International

23 October 2000 MDE 15/047/2000 203/00


Amnesty International's delegation has begun its second Fact-Finding mission to Israel and the Occupied Territories.

Claudio Cordonne from the International Secretariat of Amnesty International will be available for media interviews on the delegation's work in the region, investigating human rights concerns and violations.

Amnesty International reiterates its call for a United Nations' investigation and that all those responsible for human rights abuses should be brought to Justice.

"In policing the recent demonstrations, the Israeli security forces tended to use military methods rather than policing methods involving the protection of human lives," Amnesty International said in its recent report "Excessive use of Force" issued on 19 October 2000.

The delegation also includes Joanna Oyediran, a researcher from Amnesty International.

To organize media Interviews with the delegation call Amnesty International's press Office on +44 207 413 5831 or +44 7778 472 109
