Monday, August 29, 2016, 14:28 On the afternoon of Monday, August 29 police detectives served a Shomron resident in his 20’s with a new administrative order for house arrest at his parents’ house at night for seven months and he is also forbidden to make contact with approximately 40 specific individuals. Major General Roni Numa, the GOC of the Central Command, issued the order. The resident, who contacted Honenu for legal counsel, has been under administrative restrictions for the past year. Initially he was under administrative detention and then he was released with an order for administrative house arrest at night, which ended several months ago. Recently the order distancing him from Yehuda and Shomron was extended. Honenu reports that the GOC’s of the Central and Home Front Commands are continuing to issue administrative distancing orders, some of them new and some of them extensions. As with all administrative orders, they are issued without any judicial procedure or evidence being presented. Currently approximately 40 Jews, some of whom have been under administrative restrictions for over a year, are under administrative distancing orders. In July 2016, the President of the Military Court of Appeals, Judge Col. Netanel Benisho, leveled criticism at the Central Command with regard to the issuing of dozens of administrative restrictive orders to Jews over the past year.
