Practice Relating to Rule 100. Fair Trial Guarantees
Section D. Information on the nature and cause of the accusation
Israel’s Order regarding Security Provisions (Judea and Samaria) (2009) states with regard to procedures:
At the opening of the trial, the military court shall read the indictment to the defendant, and shall explain it to him, should he so desire. The military court may refrain from doing so regarding a defendant represented by a defense attorney, if the defense attorney announces to the court that he has read the indictment to the defendant and explained its content to him, and the defendant has confirmed that announcement; these statements of the defendant and his defense attorney shall be recorded in the transcript.
