Practice Relating to Rule 100. Fair Trial Guarantees
Section M. Right to appeal
Israel’s Order regarding Security Provisions (Judea and Samaria) (2009) states with regard to appeal:
151. At the conclusion of the reading of the judgment, the military court shall explain the defendant’s right to appeal the judgment to him, and shall notify him of the deadline for filing the appeal.
152. The judgment of the military court of the first instance can be appealed in the Military Court of Appeals.
In January 2010, in an update of its July 2009 report on Israeli operations in Gaza between 27 December 2008 and 17 January 2009, Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that, with respect to Military Courts: “Prosecutors have the right to appeal a sentence they regard as too lenient.”
