Practice Relating to Rule 100. Fair Trial Guarantees
Section F. Trial without undue delay
In its judgment in the Alkam case in 2007, Israel’s Military Court of Appeals for Judea and Samaria stated:
The fundamental right of the defendant that criminal procedures against him end within a reasonable time, is a corner stone of our legal system. The defendant’s right to a speedy procedure was also anchored in Article 71 to the Fourth Geneva Convention relative to the protection of civilian persons in time of war.
