Administrative detention is detention without charge or trial, and prevents the detainee or his lawyer from examining evidence materials, in clear and explicit violation of the provisions of international humanitarian law, so that Israel is the only party in the world that practices this policy.

The occupation authorities and prison administrations claim that administrative detainees have “secret” files that cannot be revealed, so the detainee does not know the length of his sentence or the charges against him.

The administrative detainee is often subjected to the renewal of the detention period more than once for a period of three months, six months, or eight; Sometimes up to a whole year.
