Supreme Court issues a preliminary order: “Why were no alternative paths for the fence in the area considered?” PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 04 February 2014 07:27

Yesterday, the Supreme Court of Israel asked the State Attorney to justify until 10/4/2014 why not to alter the route in Cremisan and why they insist to construct on the suggest route. Further the court asks for a statement why it shouldn’t cancel the decision of last year which was given by Special Appeals Committee in Tel Aviv. This would mean that the wall could be constructed also for example on the route the Council of Peace and Security suggested. Further, the court asked the Ministry of Defense and the Commander of the West Bank why it should not cancel the seizure orders issued in Cremisan. Until the case is decided all construction has to be stopped. “The case is not over, until a final ruling is given. The court’s decision is an indication that it is not inclined to adopt the State’s position. We definitely have new hope – the answer of the court is a good sign” explains Advocate Zvi Avni, lawyer of St. Yves representing the Salesian Convent and School. The Supreme Court set a new hearing for 30/7/2014 to discuss the requested answer of the State and the responses to it of the people of Cremisan.

Cremisan in front of the Israeli Supreme Court: decision is expected within the next days

In a session that lasted about three hours, the Israeli Supreme Court heard yesterday the case of Cremisan against the separation wall. Integral part of the hearing was the expert opinion of the Council of Peace and Security, an association of high ranking Israeli security personal. According to its expert opinion, an alternative route below the illegal settlement of Gilo would cause much less harm for the community. At the same time it would serve Israeli security needs in a better way.

Cremisan is the last remaining recreational site for the Bethlehem area and will be cut off from the community as soon as the separation wall will be constructed. 58 mainly Christian families and a Salesian convent will lose their lands; the convent, which is running a school, will be situated in a military area.

On 24thof April the Israeli Special Appeals Committee for land seizure under emergency law released its verdict in favor of the proposed second route which leaves the convent on the Palestinian side of the wall, but separates nuns from monks and cuts off the valley from Beit Jala.
