In 2016, the Canadian mining company Grand Colombia Gold (now Aris Mining) filed a US$700 million lawsuit against Colombia before ICSID[1], a private investment protection tribunal.

Since 7 October, Israel has escalated its raids across Palestinian towns and villages in the West Bank, arresting dozens of Palestinians daily. There are reports that Palestinian citizens have been arrested over social media posts. After 7 October, Israel revoked the work permits of Palestinian workers from the Gaza Strip, and thousands were arrested. An order was issued to consider these Gazans “unlawful combatants” in order to hold them for an unlimited amount of time without effective judicial review. Thus, Israel has more than doubled the number of Palestinian prisoners since 7 October.
