R. Glick to Supreme Court: “Include me as an appellee”

Monday, January 12, 2015, 19:48 In the coming days the State of Israel is expected to respond to the Supreme Court of Israel and justify its request to demolish the house belonging to the terrorist who attempted to assassinate Rabbi Yehuda Glick at the Begin Center in Jerusalem on October 29, 2014. On November 20, 2014 the Commander of the Home Front Command started the demolition process by issuing a demolition order on the house. The terrorist’s family requested that the house not be demolished on the grounds that they had no prior knowledge of his intent to assassinate Rabbi Glick and on December 31, 2014 the Supreme Court issued a conditional order stating that the demolition order not be carried out.
On Monday, January 12, on behalf of Rabbi Yehuda Glick, Honenu petitioned the Supreme Court in a demand to add him as an appellee or as a friend of the court to the existing petition in order that he be able to express his opinion in the house demolition case.
Honenu attorney Hur Uriel Nizri filed the petition and stated that Rabbi Glick “has a genuine, personal and direct interest in the subject of the petition, and he is liable to be personally injured by its consequences.”
“Not adding the petitioner as an appellee to the [existing] petition would prevent the petitioner from voicing his opinion on the matter of the injury which is liable to be caused if his claims are not voiced,” wrote Nizri and added that, “An additional justification for adding the petitioner is the significance of the petition to Israeli society since it touches upon the core of life in Israel.”
Honenu attorney Nizri noted that Rabbi Glick intends to make legal claims which were not raised by the State of Israel and added that, “There is cause for concern that not adding the petitioner as, at least, a friend of the court will lead to difficulty in wholly examining the subject of the petition.”
