Human Rights Advocates
Skeptical About Bill

DAVID MAKOVSKY

Special to The Jewish News

erusalem — Human-
rights advocates are
ambivalent about the
Basic Law: Human Rights,
which passed its preliminary
Knesset reading Nov. 15.
While they praise the
planned codification of per-
sonal liberties promised in
Israel's Proclamation of In-
dependence, they are con-
cerned that the bill is lim-
ited in scope, as it gives the
courts no power over past
legislation.
The bill, which is just at
the start of the legislative
process, would guarantee
equality before the law and
forbid discrimination on the
basis of nationality, sex,
race, creed or country of
origin; guarantee the right
to privacy, protection of
property, freedom of work,
assembly, and association;
and the right to be presumed
innocent until proven guilty.
Experts say that for the
first time there would be
some checks and balances in
Israel's government, as the
courts would be able to exer-
cise judicial review and
strike down new legislation
that is contrary to -the Basic
Law. At present, Knesset
legislation can overrule all
court verdicts.
The Basic Law, however,
would not be applicable to
the vast body of laws that al-
ready exist. The bill's au-
thors stipulated this in order
to allay fears, particularly
among the Orthodox, that
the courts could undermine
extant laws.
"The bill provides the
courts with scrutiny over the
laws of the Knesset that un-
fairly hurt human rights.
However, the new bill would
give protection to all past
legislation," said Ruth
Gavison, professor of law at
the Hebrew University.
Joshua Schoffman, legal
adviser to the Association
for Civil Rights in Israel,
said, "The bill is a step in
the right direction, but a
small step."
Both Gavison and Schoff-
man bemoaned the political
compromises that have led
to what they see as the bill's
dilution.
Schoffman said the bill
does not supeisede legisla-
tion enacted by the British
Mandatory government.
This includes all defense
regulations which grant

j

broad powers to the army in
the territories; search and
seizure laws; and film cen-
sorship. "We would like a
transition period of three to
five years for existing
legislation, so as to bring all
legislation up for judicial
review. As it stands, [past
legislation] will be immune
forever," he said.
Gavison predicted that the
bill will not make it through

"The bill is a step in
the right direction,
but a small step."

the legislative maze. "I don't
think it will emerge from
committee," she said, adding
that she thought Orthodox
groups would feel the bill
went too far.
For example, the ultra-
Orthodox reportedly fear the
Basic Law would enable the
courts to overturn draft
deferments for yeshivah
students.

Brazil's Election
Lets Jews Down

Sao Paulo, Brazil (JTA) —
Brazil's first free presiden-
tial election in 30 years has
turned out to be something
of a letdown for the country's
180,000 Jews.
The first Jewish candidate
for president of this over-
whelmingly Catholic coun-
try, media tycoon and televi-
sion entertainer Silvio San-
tos, was knocked off the
ballot on a technicality less
than a week before the polls
opened.
The two candidates most
favored by Jewish voters
were eliminated in the
voting Nov. 15.
What seems most likely
now is a runoff election on
Dec. 17 between two can-
didates who did not par-
ticularly impress Jews dur-
ing the presidential cam-

Paign-

The front-runners are Fer-
nando Collor de Mello,
described as a free-market
advocate, and Luis Ignacio
da Silva, a left-wing labor
leader, known as Lula.
Collor disenchanted Jews
by his flip-flops on the
Palestine Liberation
Organization.
Lula's Labor Party is at
least consistent. It makes no
bones about its close ties
with the PLO leadership.
