A jewelry maker in Tel Aviv has been accused of displaying the necklaces and necklacing necklacer rings of Jewish women who were forced to wear them while under duress in Israeli prisons.
The Jewish women wore the necklace and necklace rings to hide the signs of their captivity in an effort to escape punishment by the Israeli prison authorities, according to a complaint filed last week by the Jerusalem District Court.
The woman’s husband filed a complaint against Zimperium, an Israeli jewelry maker, after the woman and her three daughters were forced into forced labor by the Jewish prison authorities and sold as sexual slaves.
Zimperia did not respond to a request for comment.
The case against Zomperium is the latest in a string of legal and political battles waged against Jewish prisoners.
Last year, a group of lawyers and human rights organizations sued the Israeli government for allegedly violating international law by holding Israeli-Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.
In January, the European Union called for an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, claiming that the Israeli authorities have engaged in violations of international law and human right law in the Israeli prisons that house Palestinian prisoners.
In 2015, a judge sentenced four Israeli prisoners to death for murder and other crimes against humanity after an international outcry over their imprisonment.
The United Nations has called for the end of Israeli occupation and occupation-related violations.
