HCJ 8024/14 - Hijazi et al. v. GOC Home Front Command Petition for Order Nisi and Interim Order
Court Documents | 8024/14 | 26.11.2014
HaMoked's petition against the military's intention to seize and demolish the family home of the suspected shooter of right-wing activist Yehuda Glick. HaMoked asserts that punitive house demolition – or sealing – is nothing but unacceptable and prohibited collective punishment, contrary to international law and Israel's basic legal principle that a person must not be punished for another person's actions. The main sufferers from this cruel policy are the occupants of the demolished houses and not the alleged offenders, who, in most cases, have already been imprisoned or killed.
HaMoked petitioned the High Court of Justice against the intended demolitions of four homes in East Jerusalem: The court issued an interim injunction directing not to demolish the homes until otherwise resolved. A hearing in the petitions has not yet been scheduled
The HCJ held a hearing in two of HaMoked's petitions against the intended punitive demolitions of homes in East Jerusalem: judgment will be issued after the hearing in the general petition against the punitive house demolition policy
The state to the HCJ: punitive house demolitions in East Jerusalem are imperative to deter potential assailants in the city's population
As the families await the judgment in the petitions against the intended punitive demolitions of their homes in East Jerusalem: the occupants of one of the homes were served a Notice prior to Administrative Demolition
The HCJ's decisions over the planned punitive demolitions of four homes in East Jerusalem and in the general petition against this punitive policy: the general petition was rejected; three of the homes may be demolished and the state must justify again the planned demolition of the fourth home (02) 627 1698   (02) 627 6317
