US-operated black-hole prisons
Federal Bureau of Prisons, Communications Management Unit (CMU) in Terre Haute, Indiana, USA; CIA-operated secret prison, discovered in Bucharest, Romania.
Jerusalem, April 1 – Human Rights Alert (NGO) received a response from the Ministry of Justice of the State of Israel on a Freedom of Information Act(FOIA) request, pertaining to the names, addresses, electronic records of the Detainees Courts.
The response was considered deficient on several grounds:
1) The response came as an unsigned email note. Normally, the responses come as signed paper letters. In reply, a paper document of the response, signed by an authorized person, was requested.
2) The response denied the request, providing instead only a link to an undated “Contact” web page of the Detainees Courts, where only two courts were listed. According to media report, the Detainees Court operate in the Detainees Prisons themselves, and various external sources listed more than two such courts. Needless to say, a link to an undated, unsigned, uncertified “Contact” web page is not a valid legal response.
3) The response failed to include information regarding the request to identify those, who hold administrative responsibility for the electronic records of the Detainees Courts.
“In current US lingo, such conduct amounts to the establishment of ‘black hole’ prisons,” says Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO).
Human Rights Alert (NGO) filed the FOIA requests as part of preparation of the 2012 submission for the Universal Periodic Review of Human Rights in Israel by the Human Rights Council of the United Nations. The Human Rights Alert’s submission is narrowly focused on “integrity, or lack thereof, of the electronic record systems of the courts of the State of Israel.” 
The 2010 submission of Human Rights Alert to the Human Rights Council (HRC) of the United Nations was reviewed by the HRC professional staff and incorporated in the official HRC Professional Staff Report with a note referring to “corruption of the courts and the legal profession and discrimination by law enforcement in California.”
