The right to family life in the Territories – Criteria for family unification and visitor permits Letter to the Minister of Defense
Other | 23.10.2006
HaMoked – Center for the Defence of the Individual appealed in a letter to the Minister of Defense requesting his personal intervention in changing the illegal policy implemented by the military with regard to family unification and visitor permits for residents of the Occupied Territories. In its letter, HaMoked reviewed the arrangements regarding family unification and visitor permits up to 2000, as well as the freezing of these arrangements, in contravention of Israeli and international law, after the beginning of the intifada. HaMoked requested the Minister of Defense change the current policy so that a spousal relationship would be a satisfactory criterion for family unification and visitor permits, subject to a determination that the foreign spouse does not pose a security risk. A determination to the contrary must be based on a probable high degree of danger posed by the foreign spouse.
