HCJ 8024/14, 8025/14 - Hijazi, al-Akri et al. v. GOC Home Front Command Judgment
Judgment | 8024/14 | 31.12.2014
Judgment in HaMoked's two petitions against the military's intention to seal and demolish the family homes of the suspected shooter of right wing activist Yehuda Glick and the assailant in the ramming attack at the Jerusalem light-rail station. The court rejects the petition in the ramming case and approves the demolition, noting that this attack was particularly severe and there is no room to intervene in the decision. In the other petition, the court rules that the results of the were less severe and issues an order nisi instructing the state to justify its decision. The court notes that the fact that Glick survived and is recuperating, is significant in determining the legality of the 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
After the court orders the state to consider a proportionate alternative: state tells court it intends to seal off the room occupied by the man who shot extreme right wing activist Yehuda Glick, and leave the remainder of the home intact
The HCJ approved the sealing of the room of Yehuda Glick's shooter: the justices ruled that the sealing decision was proportionate and "moderated"
The military carried out the punitive demolition of two houses in East Jerusalem and also sealed a room in another apartment: in at least one case, extensive damage was caused to nearby homes
A year after the HCJ sanctioned the punitive demolition order: the military demolished a home in Shu’fat Refugee Camp, leaving a woman and five children homeless (02) 627 1698   (02) 627 6317
