JCSER Obtains Two Court Decisions to Grant Temporary Residence Permits

Print PDF

The Israeli Interior Ministry approved the application submitted by the Jerusalem Center for Social & Economic Rights (JCSER) to grant Ali Hassan Ju'beh's wife a temporary residence permit and a birth certificate to the newborn baby who was born in March 2007.

Mr. Ju'beh is married to a Palestinian woman from the West Bank (holder of a West Bank ID card). In 2002, he applied for family reunification. However, the application amongst thousands of other family reunification applications was frozen, due to the Interior Minister's March 2002 decision to 'freeze' action on all Palestinian residents' family reunification applications. The Interior Ministry agreed to reconsider the application end of last year (2006). It sent a memo to the client requesting him to provide it with papers and documents to prove the family's 'center of life' in East Jerusalem since 2001 to date.

The Center provided the Interior Ministry with the requested papers and documents, and with detailed and legal replies to its queries concerning documents the client had previously submitted. The Interior Ministry was, therefore, forced to grant the applicant's wife a temporary residence permit and a birth certificate to the newborn baby.

In another development, the Center was recently able to obtain the National Insurance Institute's official approval to grant 'Anan Hammad, a Palestinian Jerusalemite resident of Beit Hanina of Occupied East Jerusalem, her social & economic rights, including old age benefits in full.

The Israeli Labor Court approved the agreement, which has been reached between the Center & the (NII), thus forcing the latter to restore the social & economic rights due to the client in full.

It should be noted that the (NII) discontinued the client's social & economic allowances and benefits more than two years ago under the pretext that she resides outside the municipal boundaries of Jerusalem.

The Center lodged a case to the Israeli Labor Court against the NII. The Court examined the papers and documents provided by the Center's lawyer, heard the witnesses' statements (NII & Mrs. Hammad), and advised both parities to reach an agreement. A court session was set for 30 April 2007 to hear the NII's witnesses. However, they failed to attend the session, while the Center submitted additional documents to prove the client's place of residence in East Jerusalem. Accordingly, the court decided to set a session for 09 May 2007, and to fine the NII if it fails to appear before the court.

One day before the court session, the Center received a phone call from the NII, acknowledging the client's place of residence within Jerusalem's municipal boundaries as of June 2004. She was paid in full he rights and allowances, including elderly allowances.

The Center also succeeded in obtaining a decision from the Jerusalem Municipal Court in Jerusalem, abolishing the imprisonment order and the delay fees imposed on Dr. Talal Abu Afifeh, who was accused of fixing PLC posters in outlaid places without obtaining a license from the Jerusalem Municipality. (Dr. Abu Afifeh ran for the Palestinian Legislative Council, which were conducted on 25 January 2006).

As he refused to pay the fine, the court issued an imprisonment order against him and imposed a fine in the amount of 10,000 shekels. The Center submitted a petition against the court decision; thus, the court agreed to cancel the imprisonment order and the delay fees on condition that the original amount of the fine is paid in full.
