Two court orders obtained

 

The Israeli Central Court has accepted a petition submitted by the Jerusalem Center for Social & Economic Rights (JCSER) contesting the Jerusalem Municipal Courts decision to fine Mohammed Ahmad Thaher, a resident of Bab Hutta in the Old City of Jerusalem, NIS 10,000 shekels for building a 60-square-meter house in 1995-1996 without a building permit.

 

 

 

 

Thaher was also given three months to leave his house.

 

According to the Central Courts decision, the fine will be reduced from 10,000 to 5,000 shekels, to be paid in ten equal monthly installments, and the period given to quit the building will be extended from three months to a year and a half [end of April 2004], on condition that Mr. Thaher takes the legal procedures necessary to obtain a building permit during this period.

 

The Central Court also refused a request from the Jerusalem Municipal Court to issue a demolition order against Mohammed Thahers house.

 

Mohammed Thaher is married with fourchildren. The Jerusalem Municipality submitted a bill of indictment against Mr. Thaher for building a 60 square-meter house without a building license.

 

The Center also succeeded in obtaining a decision from the Jerusalem Municipal Court, under which a fine of NIS 7,500 imposed on Nader Ahmad Eweisat for committing a building violation will be paid in 15 equal monthly installments as of 20 March 2003.

 

The Court also gave him until 1 January 2004 to obtain a building permit. If progress is made, the period given will be extended.

 

Last year, the Jerusalem Municipality submitted a bill of indictment against Nader Eweisat for adding three balconies to an already existing building without a building permit.
