Brussels/Copenhagen, 17 February: The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Network (EMHRN) is calling on the EU to address the deteriorating human rights situation in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory when meeting Israeli authorities at the EU-Israel Association Council meeting on 21 February.
    The last Association Council took place in June 2009, four months after the election of the Netanyahu Government.
“Since then the human rights situation in Israel has deteriorated, undermining basic principles of democracy”, says Marc Schade-Poulsen, Executive Director of EMHRN.
