AP 8568/08 - Hamadah et al. v. State of Israel - Ministry of Interior et al. Judgment
Judgment | 8568/08 | 26.1.2009
Judgment in a petition against the Interior Ministry's refusal of an application for family unification submitted by a permanent resident of Israel, who lives in Wadi Humus, a neighborhood of Sur Bahir which is located outside of Jerusalem's municipal limits. The Court accepted the petitioners' position, that the Attorney General's decision - that residents of the neighborhood have a center of life in Israel for the purpose of National Insurance - should be applied to the Entry into Israel Law. Linking the Entry into Israel Law and the National Insurance Law is especially appropriate, as the Interior Ministry itself relies on National Insurance Institute investigations when it seeks to ascertain an applicant's center of life.
Two petitions on behalf of two families who live in Wadi Hummus, a section of Sur Bahir - the Court accepted one petition and rejected the other: the first petition concerned the denial of a request to register children and the second – the denial of an application for family unification. In both cases the Interior Ministry claimed that the requests had been rejected since the families live out...
The Supreme Court took a first step towards ruling that residents of Wadi Hummus, a part of the village of Sur Bahir, will not be considered as having a center of life in Jerusalem, and therefore will not be included in the Israeli population registry: The Court gave HaMoked and the Ministry of the Interior a 60-day extension to resolve the appellants' individual cases
Court accepts HaMoked’s petition against Interior Ministry rejection of a family unification application: A wet toothbrush and some fresh bananas found in the family’s Wadi Hummus apartment are not enough to determine family claim of center-of-life in Jerusalem is false (02) 627 1698   (02) 627 6317
