HCJ 1635/16 - Abu Kaf et al. v. Government of Israel et al. Petition for Order Nisi
Court Documents | 1635/16 | 28.2.2016

HaMoked's petition against the revocation of residency status in Israel of four residents of East Jerusalem who are suspected of committing attacks. HaMoked claims that the Minister of Interior lacks the authority to revoke status on grounds of "breaches of loyalty", and that their status does not require loyalty to the state, unlike citizenship. HaMoked also emphasizes that the four are protected persons due to the special status of East Jerusalem, and are therefore protected from expulsion according to international law. In addition, HaMoked claims that status revocation harms the residents' basic right to status and family life, dignity and freedom of movement.

HaMoked in a petition to the HCJ against the revocation of Israeli status of four East Jerusalem residents: “the thin line between punishment, retribution and plain revenge has been crossed in the petitioners’ case and the state’s response to their acts”
State's notice to the HCJ: request to submit the response to the petition against the revocation of status of four East Jerusalem men only after judgment is delivered on the public petition on this issue
The HCJ ruled that the Minister of Interior is not authorized to revoke permanent status due to breach of allegiance to the state: however, the decision to revoke the status of four East Jerusalem youths on this ground will not be cancelled for now, to allow the Knesset to make it legal
HaMoked contests revocation of status of four East Jerusalem residents for “breach of allegiance to the State”: retroactive application of unconstitutional legislation (02) 627 1698   (02) 627 6317
