Ma'moun Daoud Farrah of Beit Haninah accused officials of Israeli courts' Executive Department of abducting him on Monday morning while he was driving his kids to Rosary Girls School.

In his testimony to the Jerusalem Center for Social and Economic Rights, JCSER, the officials who were driving a civilian Jeep followed him from the moment he left his home and their stopped him near the traffic light at Neve Ya'cob Intersection.

He added, "At that moment, one of the staff members left the Jeep and approached me and asked if I am Daoud Farrah. When I told him yes, he got inside my car and ordered me to get my kids to the school first, since he wants to talk to me separately."

"When I insisted that he should identify himself, he ordered me to stop by the side of the street which leads to an Israeli military camp. Then my kids get out of the car and continued to walk to their school.

Then the Israeli car blocked the way in front of my car and the people inside ordered me to hand them my car keys. They claimed that I am in debt for the Arnona tax. I responded by showing a receipt proving that I pay for all my debts. However, they didn't believe me and insisted that my debt for Israel's Jerusalem Municipality amounts to NIS 37,000."

"When I told them that they are asking for a debt on a house and a land lot that I don't own, they responded by saying that I might own another house. I responded, you may be mistaken and I am not the person you are looking for. Yet, they continued to seize me. Later, they took me to the intersection that leads to Ramot Settlement and there they handed me a notice of seizing my car until I pay for my debt."

"I believe that what I went through was strange and bizarre. I never heard in my life that people working with official institutions behave in such way of gangs."
