Four Preventive Orders Issued

Print PDF

The Jerusalem Center for Social & Economic Rights (JCSER) was able recently able to obtain four court decisions postponing the demolition of houses in Occupied East Jerusalem for periods ranging between 3 and 6 months, after the WJM had previously refused to extend the demolition orders.

JCSER's Legal Unit forced the WJM to postpone the demolition order issued against Taghreed Adeeleh for a three month period, after submitting data to the court confirming that there is no need to change the scheme of the area where the client's house is located, and that the WJM delayed in replying to the building scheme submitted by the house-owner. The WJM, therefore, agreed to postpone the demolition of the house on condition that the house-owner takes the legal procedures necessary to obtain a building permit during this period.

The Unit was also able to postpone the demolition order issued against Anad Obeidat for a six-month period, after a postponement application had previously been declined. On the one hand, the court forced the WJM to extend the demolition order; while on the other hand, it kept the bill of indictment issued against the house-owner for violating the WJM's laws pending a final decision of the case by the court.

In another development, the court ordered the dismissal of the case lodged against Maher Tiryaq, who is accused of violating building laws, after it was convinced of the claims submitted by the Legal Unit. In accordance with the court decision, the house-owner was acquitted of the charge of building violation, thus canceling the fine and the demolition order issued against him.

In compliance with the Center's request, the court issued an order postponing the demolition order issued against Ahmad Ellayan, a resident of Beit Safafa, south of Occupied Jerusalem, for a six-month period, after submitting data to the court confirming that the client is the legal process of obtaining a building permit.

A 17,000-shekel fine was imposed on Mr. Ellayan under the pretext that he violated building laws.

The Legal Unit noted that the Center handled hundreds of similar case files over the past few years in which it succeeded in canceling dozens of demolition orders and in postponing demolition orders for periods ranging between six months and one year.
