Parliamentary questions
6 July 2012
E-002248/2012
Answer given by High Representative/Vice-President Ashton on behalf of the Commission

Without a determination in each individual case of the grounds for administrative detention and the legal basis thereof, it is impossible to generically brand administrative detention as illegal. This includes a determination of the legality of time spans for detention. However, administrative detention when properly sanctioned by a legal basis does not operate in a legal vacuum and needs, inter alia, to provide for the possibility of review of the requirement for continued detention by competent authorities

The HR/VP has set out her concerns with regard to the extensive use by Israel of administrative detention clearly in the statement of 17 February 2012.
