Appeal 1399/17 - 'Aweisat v. Minister of Interior Urgent Appeal, Urgent Application for Interim Injunction and Interim Order and Application for Expansion of Arguments
Court Documents | 26.1.2017

An urgent appeal by HaMoked against the Ministry of Interior's decision to revoke the status of the son of a resident of Israel and a resident of the West Bank. The man, who has been living in Jerusalem with his family for 9 years, is the nephew of the assailant in a vehicular attack from January 2016 in Jerusalem. Following the attack, the Ministry of Interior announced the revocatin of the man's status. HaMoked maintains that the man has no connection to his cousin's actions and disagrees with them, and that the motive for the status revocation is "to please the masses through collective punishment, in the name of revenge and deterrence". HaMoked claims the decision is illegal, contradictory to precedent and regulations, and seriously harms the man and his family's right to family life.
