UN Will Take Action Against Infiltrator Imprisonment

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees’ representative in Israel, William Tall, said on Sunday that if Israel imprisons asylum seekers for long periods of time, the UN will take legal action against the decision. Tall was quoted in a report on Army Radio.

Tall's remarks come after the National Immigration Authority announced that from now on it will detain all infiltrators who come into Israel for up to three years.
