HCJ 9353/08 - Abu Dheim et al. v. GOC Home Front Command Judgment
Judgment | 9353/08 | 5.1.2009
Judgment in HaMoked's petition to prevent the sealing of the home of the family of the perpetrator of the attack against Merkaz Harav, as this is a disproportionate punitive measure, motivated by vengeance. The Court rejects the petitioners' claim that the use of Regulation 119 of the Defense (Emergency) Regulations – the basis for the decision to seal the house - contradicts the conclusions of the Shani Committee, which examined the house demolition policy and recommended its cancellation, as well as international law. The Court rules that, considering East Jerusalemites' involvement in attempted attacks, there is no room to intervene in the discretion of the military commander, who has chosen to resume the use of Regulation 119, which legitimizes the said measure to an appropriate and proportionate end, involving minimal injury to human rights.
