שטיפת מוח, בלתי חוקית was not accepted

I reported it, but I'm curious if אינה חוקית would be accepted.

הלא "בלתי-חוקי" או "אי-חוקי" אומר את אותו הדבר?

you cannot say "אי-חוקי".

What about בלתי-חוקי?

It works, people would understand it, but it's the equivalent of an English speaker saying "unlegal". The common thing to say is ״לא חוקי״

Maybe מנוגדת לחוק or בניגוד לחוק should be accepted as well.
