Between 2001 and 2015, Approximately 950 complaints of Torture victims were filed to the Attorney General. To date not a single criminal investigation has been launched. To mark this statistic, PCATI held The Attorney General and Secret Torturer’s Ball on 30
April 2015 at the Jaffa Theater.
The ball was an hour and a half long multifarious art event held as part of an activism solidarity festival. Two videos of torture victim testimonies were screened, specially produced for the occasion by PCATI and Social Television. Two testimonies from “Breaking the Silence” were also screened, in which soldiers described their impressions of working alongside Israel Security Agency personnel and their treatment of Palestinians.
The event also included musical, dance and theatrical monologues. Participants included: Amir Orian, Ishai Menuchin, Smadar Yaaron, Einat Weizman, Eran Reiss, Ruth Dolores Weiss and more.
