Harassment: Police still check home for administrative detainee

Sunday, March 5, 2023, 18:15 One of the two Yehuda and Shomron residents who were served last week with four-month administrative orders signed by Defense Minister Yoav Gallant had been under nightly house arrest at his parents’ home. The police checked the home every night to ensure compliance, and he was never absent. Although he is now in custody at the Russian Compound in Jerusalem since he received the administrative order, the police continue to visit his parents’ house each night to verify that he is at home.

The detainee’s father reacted to the harassment by the police: “The police and the GSS are incapable of synchronizing the simple transfer of information between them. How can we possibly be assured that the confidential information on which the draconian order that my son received is based is reliable and exact? Anyone who is suspected of a crime is entitled to a trial in court. We expect the same for our son.”

Honenu Attorney Adi Keidar, who is representing the administrative detainee, stated, “The fact that the Israel Police and the GSS are not coordinated is a simple example of how the security authorities relate to Yehuda and Shomron residents – with heavy-handed, restrictive treatment. This is all done by illegitimate means, by administrative orders, including administrative detention orders, instead of putting them on trial in court. That is what is done with someone against whom there is evidence. And in this case, of course, this has not been done.”
