Criminal Jurisdiction Under the Gaza-Jericho Agreement

Criminal Jurisdiction Under the Gaza-Jericho Agreement

This paper looks at criminal jurisdiction under the Gaza-Jericho Agreement, one of a number of challenging legal questions raised by the Agreement due to its sui generis nature. It assess the Agreement's provisions on criminal jurisdiction, and discusses Israel's conduct in the sphere of criminal jurisdiction in light of the law of international and Israeli domestic law. The study concludes that Israel has retained significant powers in the sphere of criminal jurisdiction in the autonomous areas, and thus cannot escape its international responsibility as an Occupying Power. The territory of the Gaza Strip and the Jericho Area retains its status as occupied territory.
