Israel mulls emergency laws to handle Palestinian riots in West Bank

“The Ministry for Public Security has prepared a draft plan for putting in place emergency law regulations to deal with possible massive protests and disruption of order in the wake of a declaration of an independent Palestinian state. The plan - which would curtail the rights of those detained, or under arrest - has sparked disagreement among members of the Justice Ministry. The document circulated at the Justice Ministry last week after its experts, along with Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein, were asked to to give their opinion of it to the Public Security Ministry.”
