Israel Law Review Will Not Remove Schabas

The Israel Law Review, which is published under Hebrew University auspices and management, has announced it has no intention of removing William Schabas from its International Advisory Board, following his appointment to head a UNHRC commission investigating the operation in Gaza.

According to a report in Israel Hayom, following Schabas's appointment, Attorney David Shonberg contacted the university requesting that Schabas be removed from the institution's Faculty of Law, but Faculty Dean Prof. Yuval Shany, who is on the board of the far-left B'Tselem organization, rejected the request.

Shany wrote to Shonberg, "Professor Schabas was appointed to the law faculty's advisory board due to his expertise in human rights law, not because of his political views."
