HCJ 282/88 - ‘Awad v. Yitzhak Shamir, Prime Minister and Minister of Interior et al. Judgment
Judgment | 282/88 | 5.6.1988
The HCJ dismisses the petition of an East Jerusalem resident who relocated to the USA for studies, acquired American citizenship, and when wishing to return to Jerusalem, was told his residency had been revoked and that he was to be deported. The HCJ ruled that the status of East Jerusalem Palestinians is regulated by the Entry into Israel Law, which defines their permanent residency permits. It is not "quasi citizenship" status, as the petitioner's claim, given that such status does not exist in Israel. The petitioner relocated from Israel, and lost his right to residency under the Entry into Israel Regulations. However, the HCJ noted that the Interior Minister's power to revoke residency is subject to substantive considerations and judicial review.
