Jerusalem, March 21 - Human Rights Alert (NGO) has released Appendices, including evidence of large-scale fraud in the electronic record systems of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel. The evidence has so far been reviewed by three senior Israeli Computing Experts. All three found the evidence alarming and disturbing.

The evidence was not based on legal review. Instead, it was based on data mining.

The Appendices [1-11] were prepared for filing with the Supreme Court itself, in hope that the Court would address the issues by agreeing to have the systems reviewed by Israeli computing experts.

Probably the strongest and fastest to review evidence is in:

a) Appendix #00 (in Hebrew) – Excerpts from the Ombudsman’s Report 60b.
The report states that the systems were developed with no written specifications, with no core supervision by State employees, and with no inspection of their validity by the State prior to implementation. The systems were developed by contracts with IBM, EDS, with no bidding, in apparent violation of State law. In response to Freedom of Information request, the Courts Administration stated that no manuals for the systems existed either. Therefore, the systems are basically a black box.

b) Appendix #03 (in English) – Certificates, or Lack Thereof, of the Servers of the Supreme Court of Israel.
Therefore, the identity of the servers is unknown. According to the State Ombudsman, the servers are not under control of the Supreme Court either. Instead they reside on corporate grounds in Herzlia.

c) Appendix #06 (in English) – Invalid on their faces decisions of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel.
Two sample false decisions were provided (out of many other similar examples):
- One decisions was purportedly signed by a judge a year and a half after he left the court, and certified by the Chief Clerk 5 years after his death.
- One decision was purportedly certified twice by the late Chief Clerk, against two different electronic files.

It is hoped that computing experts would recognize it as their civic duty to oversee the integrity of the case management systems of the courts and prisons, which are critical for the safeguard of civil society in our time.

The evidence from similar systems in the United States shows also routine fraud in cases pertaining to Banking Regulation. [12]

Conditions in this regard in the United States are much worse. [13] In contrast with conditions in Israel, no legal or computing expert in the United States, who was asked, agreed to review the evidence of large-scale fraud in the electronic records of the US courts, from the District courts, through the courts of appeals, to the Supreme Court of the United States.
