The practice allows the authorities to issue detention orders for renewable intervals on the basis of classified evidence which is not disclosed even to the detainees' lawyers. This practice has been repeatedly criticized by international organizations, including the United Nations and human rights watchdogs as a violation of civil and political rights.
