In addition to participating in lobbying the EU against upgrading ties with Israel, Adalah twice protested decisions made by Attorney General Mazuz. In one instance, Adalah collected over 220,000 signatures for a petition to appoint an external inquiry into the October 2000 riots; in January 2008, Mazuz refused to indict police officers for their role in the riots, finding no evidence of criminal acts, despite protests from  the Israeli Arab community.
In the second, Adalah attempted to stop investigations into representatives of the political party Balad, including Azmi Bishara. According to news reports, the General Security Services suspects that Bishara is recruiting for Hezbollah and other “enemy groups”.
