“Human Rights Watch (HRW) found that the authorities in Gaza have a broken justice system,” the reports author Bill Van Esveld told The Media Line. “They are putting people in prison without warrants, denying people access to their lawyers while in detention, cases of abuse in detention are not being investigated and some people have been executed on the basis of confessions that were extracted under torture.”

Van Esveld says that at least 100 Palestinians complained of torture in 2011, although he believes the number to be much higher as many are afraid to speak out. HRW is calling on Hamas to make widespread reforms.

“We are calling on Hamas to end the torture and abuse of detainees, and ensure that detainees have access to their lawyers,” Van Esveld said. “Hamas must ensure that the families of people w ho are being arrested know where they’re being held, and are allowed to see them. Most importantly, given all of these serious abuses and the fact that torture confessions are being used in courts, Hamas must impose a moratorium on the death penalty in Gaza. Innocent people might be executed.”

Indeed, palistan-info.bull.co.uk makes one think so, but we can't compare jpost to that garbage depot, of course.
