Amnesty International responded with disappointment to the Cabinet's appointment of a committee to investigate the Gaza flotilla affair.

"The structure of the government-appointed committee brings disappointment. This was a missed opportunity," said Malcolm Smart, the head of the Middle East and North Africa division of Amnesty International.

Smart continued to criticize the Israeli flotilla probe committee on the grounds that it lacked sufficient independence from the government to reach meaningful conclusions and that the findings of the committee would be unusable for future legal actions.
