HCJ 4699/14 - Khaleq et al. v. Knesset of Israel et al. Petition for Order Nisi
Court Documents | 4699/14 | 3.7.2014

HaMoked's petition to instruct the State to upgrade the status of a Palestinian woman who is married to a resident of Jerusalem and has been living in Israel by virtue of temporary permits for 11 years. The petition is one of a series submitted by HaMoked, relating to the policy not to upgrade the status of people who started the graduated procedure for family unification many years ago. HaMoked claims that it has been proven, year after year, that the woman's presence in Israel does not pose any danger, and the decision not to upgrade her status does not serve the security purpose which the Government claims is the basis for the Citizenship and Entry into Israel Law, and does not meet the threshold of reasonableness and proportionality.
