Steve Weizman

Error (AP, Steve Weizman, 5/7/07): Israel's Justice Ministry, which received a copy of the [B'Tselem] report, said in response that Shin Bet interrogations are "performed in accordance with the law." The report is "fraught with mistakes, groundless claims and inaccuracies," the ministry said, without elaborating.

Correction (5/7/07): The report is "fraught with mistakes, groundless claims and inaccuracies," the ministry said, but added that it could not give a detailed rebuttal to the allegations of illegal interrogation methods "due to confidentiality reasons." The ministry did respond specifically to other charges in the report, unequivocally denying that interrogators sought to isolate and alienate prisoners, used bad language in front of them and served intentionally unappetizing food. "This bizarre claim is unfounded and is indicative of the lack of seriousness and tendentiousness of the person claiming it," the ministry said of the food allegation.
