Social & Economic Rights Restored to Jerusalemite Families

Print PDF

JCSER's Legal Unit received the Israeli Interior Ministry's approval to grant a residency permit to Musa Farun, a Palestinian resident of Al-Izzariyya neighborhood, southeast Occupied East Jerusalem, in response to the family reunification application, which was submitted several years ago.

JCSER lawyer Farid Mahajneh, who followed up the case file, noted that the Interior Ministry was forced to grant its approval of the family reunification application after the warning sent by the Center to refer to the court to look into the complaint lodged against it by the client. The application was submitted several ago. However, the Interior Ministry continued to delay in processing the application, claiming that the client has a criminal file. The court refuted the claim by acquitting the client of the charge.

In addition, the Interior Ministry approved the child registration application submitted by Omar Zuheir Da'na, a Palestinian resident of the Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, southeastern of Jerusalem's Old City, after the Center approached the court. The latter issued a decision forcing the Interior Ministry to register Mr. Da'na's children on his Jerusalem ID card.

While the Interior Ministry requested Mr. Da'na to submit the documents and papers related to the child registration application, it did not give its final reply regarding the family reunification application submitted by the client.

The Legal Unit obtained a court decision extending an appointment at the Labor Court to look into the complaint submitted by Yasser Gheith, a Palestinian resident of Ath-Thori neighborhood of Occupied Jerusalem, requesting the National Insurance Institute (NII) to pay his elderly (old age) allowance.

The Unit sent a memo to the WJM's legal advisor asking him to exempt the client of Arnona tax debts in the amount of 30,000 shekels on a real state located inside the walls of Jerusalem's Old City. The real estate was turned from a shop into a residence.

The Unit also succeeded in obtaining a decision from the Israeli Labor Court, forcing the NII to restore the health insurance to Mohammed Judah and his wife, Palestinian Jerusalemite residents of Kufr Akab, northern Occupied Jerusalem, after the NII discontinued the health insurance for several years. Under the court decision, the NII will pay the old age allowance to the client and his wife retroactively.
