12-01-31 Who controls the electronic records of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel?IBM?
The Israeli Courts Administration is asked to produce records, which document the identity of those, who hold the ultimate administrative authority for the servers of the Supreme Court. The evidence so far would lead any reasonable person to conclude that it is NOT the Clerk of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel.In Israel computing and leg al experts are willing to discuss the issues and propose solutions.

Jerusalem, January 31
Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO), has forwarded to the CourtsAdministration a request for records, pertaining to the identity of those holding the ultimate administrativeauthority for the servers of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel.
A series of reports, recently published online by Dr Zernik, has first shown a pattern of online publication of simulated records on the servers (ELYON1 and ELYON2),
and the failure and refusal of the Office of the Clerk of the Supreme Court to certify the Court's own records.
Furthermore, ambiguity was shown inthe identity certifications of the Supreme Court servers.
The 2010 report of the Israeli Ombudsman Judge (Ret) Lindenstrauss,
raised serious concern regarding theintegrity of the development and implementation of the computer systems of the Israeli courts as well.Several corporations were involved in development with no bidding and with no core supervision by stateemployees. The corporations were only identified in the Ombudsman's report as A, B, and C. Mediaidentified the corporations:
EDS, Teldor, and IBM Global Services
"Today's request attempts to establish, who indeed maintains and safeguards the integrity of the records of theSupreme Court of the State of Israel," concludes Dr Zernik, "The evidence so far would lead any reasonableperson to conclude that it is NOT the Clerk of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel."Dr Zernik had previously shown the refusal of the Clerk of the Los Angeles Superior Court and the Clerks of the US courts from coast to coast to certify their own decisions, orders, and judgments, which were publishedin the same courts' online public access systems. "Any court, where the Clerk refuses to certify the Court'sown records, is certified corrupt," says Dr Zernik, "it is part of a global culture of Corporate-GovernmentCriminality."
According to Dr Zernik, a critical difference between conditions in the US and in Israel is that in Israel, bothcomputing and legal scholars are willing to discuss the problems and propose solutions. Legal andcomputing experts in the United States have consistently refused to opine on these matters.
