GOC Central Command renewed administrative distancing orders

Wednesday, November 30, 2011, 10:51 Overnight policemen broke into the Jerusalem apartment in which the Yehuda and Shomron residents under administrative distancing orders are staying and left in the entryway two administrative distancing orders banning the recipients from Yehuda and Shomron. The orders are for two of the Yehuda and Shomron residents whose distancing orders will expire in two days and are for a period of six months. Approximately four months ago 12 administrative distancing orders banning the recipients from Yehuda and Shomron were issued to residents of Yitzhar, Hevron and Jerusalem. Approximately one month later an additional order was issued. Some of the recipients of the orders have been distanced from their homes for a period of one year. The orders, which were signed by the GOC of the Central Command, Major-General Avi Mizrahi, were issued on the recommendation of the GSS. One of the recipients of the renewed orders was detained on suspicion of involvement with the mosque arson in the village of Tuba Zangria, but released after no evidence implicating him was found. Sources close to him reported that it appears that after the GSS did not succeed in incriminating him, they decided to punish him with an administrative distancing order. Shmuel Medad (Zangi), the director of Honenu, which is assisting the recipients of the orders with legal counsel, said in response to the renewal of the orders that “Usually a state becoming a totalitarian dictatorship does not realize it as it happens. This system in which a person is told, ‘We don’t have anything against you, but we don’t like you, so you’re going to be exiled from your home,’ is an unacceptable system that should cause every Israeli citizen concern.”
