Regulation Bars Palestinians from Going to Israeli Courts

12:00 Aug 6 2012 Tel Aviv, Israel

TEL AVIV, August 6, 2012 (WAFA) - Israel's Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman signed a new regulation which prevents Palestinians and immigrants who do not carry Israeli residency papers from filing lawsuits in Israeli courts, the Israeli Haaretz newspaper said Monday.

Oded Feller, a lawyer for the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, said the new regulation, which will take effect on September 1, will mainly affect Palestinians who file hundreds of compensation lawsuits annually against the Israeli army.

As for non-resident immigrants, the regulation will prevent them from filing lawsuits in labor courts against their employers, or if injured in a car accident, if arrested, or from filing lawsuits against the Israeli Interior Ministry if it decides to deport them.

Individuals who have no passport will be referred to a registrar or judge, said the paper.
