A new report by the Public Committee Against Torture in Israel and Physicians for Human Rights-Israel reveals that doctors and paramedics who in recent years treated detainees and prisoners refrained from reporting signs of mistreatment and torture on their patients, thus becoming passive partners in detainee torture.  The report is based on the affidavits of 100 detainees and prisoners, collected since 2007, and determines that the medical professionals acted systematically in violation of their professional ethics codes.
