Israel/OPT: Amicus Curiae Briefing to the Israeli Supreme Court in Administrative Appeal 2966/19 Human Rights Watch et al. v. Minister of Interior et al
This written amicus curiae brief was submitted to the Israeli Supreme Court by Amnesty International in Administrative Appeal 2966/19 Human Rights Watch et al. v. Minister of Interior et al. Amnesty International submits that upholding the District Court’s decision to confirm the authorities’ decision to de facto deport Mr Omar Shakir, which has been solely based on his use of peaceful tools to advance human rights and his activities as a human rights defender, will be an unreasonable and disproportionate restriction on his rights to freedom of expression and association in contravention of Israel’s obligations under international human rights law.
