Supreme Court; Chief Clerks: the late Shmaryahu Cohen, Sarah Lifschitz; State of Israel
View as PDF:
Jerusalem, April 5 – following repeated requests, Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO), has received for the first time purported certifications by Chief Clerk Sarah Lifschitz on three judicial records of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel. All three records originated in challenges by Dr Zernik to the integrity of the electronic record systems of the Supreme Court. [1,2] All three records are claimed to be simulated decisions of the Supreme Court. [3,4]
All three certifications are deemed false and deliberately misleading as well, for the following reasons:
- If valid original judicial records had existed for any of the three decisions, they would have been the records signed by the respective justices/judges. However, the Chief Clerk’s certifications are executed on unsigned copies of the respective records, which bear the disclaimer, “subject to editing and phrasing changes”.
- The certification statement used by the Chief Clerk is invalid:
- The Regulations of the Courts – Office of the Clerk (2004), Regulation 6a explicitly states, that the certification statement, which the Chief Clerk is permitted to execute is “Copy Corresponds to the Original” (He’eteq Mat’im la-Maqor). 
- The March 29, 2012 cover letter of the records, signed by Chief Clerk Sarah Lifschitz, also purports the same: that the attached records bear the certification statement, “Copy Corresponds to the Original”.
- In contrast, the attached records are stamped “Copying Corresponds to the Original” (Ha’ataqah Mat’imah la-Maqor).
- Since January 2003, all decisions of the Supreme Court have been published online unsigned, uncertified, and with the disclaimer – “subject to editing and phrasing changes.”
- Although the Supreme Court relies on electronic records, no visible certified electronic signatures, pursuant to the Electronic Signature Act(2001), have been established in the electronic record systems of the Supreme Court to this date.
- Numerous decisions of the Supreme Court have been falsified, particularly in 2002, following the sudden death of Chief Clerk Shmaryahu Cohen. Decisions, issued years after his death, bear his purported certifications. 
- The evidence indicates that Chief Clerk Sarah Lifschitz is not in control of the electronic records systems of the Supreme Court. And given that a valid certification by her on any judicial record of the Supreme Court is yet to be discovered, the nature of her appointment remains unclear. The Administration of Courts has denied a Freedom of Information request for her appointment record, claiming that it was exempt as a “record of internal deliberations”. 
- The “Judicial Authority” has also published online an undated, unsigned, false and deliberately misleading certification arrangement, relative to theHague Apostille Convention(1961). The arrangement delegates the apostille certification authority, which is vested in the Chief Clerk of the Supreme Court (or other Deputy Clerks) to outside notaries. The arrangement is alleged as fraud on the courts of other nations, which are party to the Convention. The Administration of Courts refused to disclose, who authored the arrangement, who authorized its publication on the web, who the Justice Minister was, whose authority was invoked in the arrangement, and what the legal foundation for the apostille certification arrangement was. 
Combined, the evidence shows that the Supreme Court refuses to certify its own judicial records, and when pressed, resorts to false and deliberately misleading certification procedures.
“A court, which refuses to certify its own records, is certified corrupt,” concludes Dr Zernik.
The requests for certification of the three decisions at hand, were filed by Dr Zernik, as part of preparation of submission for the 2012 Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of human rights in the State of Israel by the Human Rights Council (HRC) of the United Nations. The submission is narrowly focused on “integrity, or lack thereof, of the electronic record systems of the courts of the State of Israel.”
The draft submission alleges:
- Conditions, now prevailing in the electronic record systems of the national courts of the State of Israel, are in violations of any article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, where integrity of the courts and the justice system is a prerequisite. Conditions, which have been established over the past decade should be deemed a simulated justice system, reflecting corruption of the courts, the Ministry of Justice, and the legal profession.
The submission concludes:
- The validity of any legal public records, originating in the State of Israel, and employed in the UPR process, should be re-assessed;
Nations, including but not limited to those, who are parties to the Hague Apostille Convention (1961), should re-assess any faith and credit, given to legal public records, originating in the State of Israel.
- The findings carry far-reaching implications in analysis of socioeconomic trends, stability of local financial markets, and regional violence.
- Attempts by the State of Israel to address the crisis would likely be compounded by conflicts of rivaling security, legal, and computing groups. The submission recommends:
- Recruitment of all possible civil society agents in effort to resolve a constitutional crisis, in a nation with no constitution.
- Institution of a thorough, public investigation of events surrounding the death of Supreme Court Chief Clerk Shmaryahu Cohen in 2002.
- Establishment of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Conditions, which have been established in the courts of the State of Israel over the past decade, closely mimic conditions, which had been established in the US courts a decade or two earlier. Corruption of the US courts is tightly linked to the current financial crisis and civil unrest in the United States, and therefore, the State of Israel should be considered at increased risk of the same. The 2010 submission of Human Rights Alert, for the UPR of human rights in the United States, was reviewed and incorporated into 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.”
