AAA 8849/03 Dufash et al. v. Jerusalem Population Administration Director et al. Judgment
Judgment | 8849/03 | 2.6.2008

Judgment on HaMoked's appeal against the Court for Administrative Affairs' rejection of a request by the spouse of a resident of Jerusalem to upgrade his status to temporary residency. In the hearing on the appeal, the Ministry of Interior agreed, following the Court's comments, that if it transpires that failure to upgrade the status stemmed from a mistake or unreasonable delays on the Ministry's part, it will consider the upgrade even after the deciding date. The Court therefore returned the proceedings to the Court for Administrative Affairs, to examine the appellant's entitlement to status upgrade, out of consideration for his right to expedited review of his matter and to appeal any future decision, if necessary. In the hearing in the Court for Administrative Affairs, the man's status was updated as requested.
