Thursday, November 21, 2019, 11:53 Neriya Zarog is continuing his fight and refuses to sign on the administrative order which distances him from his home. Zarog will remain in remand until next week, when the order expires. At a deliberation which took place on Thursday, November 21, at the Petah Tikva Magistrates Court, Neriya Zarog continued his refusal to sign on the administrative distancing order served to him. The order will expire at the beginning of next week, and the judge scheduled an additional deliberation in his case for immediately thereafter. Honenu Attorney Nati Rom, who is representing Zarog, stated: “This morning the court heard my client, Neriya Zarog, describe how torn he is between his desire to return to his family, his children, his home and his flock of goats, and the difficulty of submitting to the draconian administrative order, for which there is no place in a democratic state and which severely violates Neriya’s human rights. “We hope that next week we will see Neriya free, together with his wife and children, and that the serious violation of human rights caused by administrative orders, which various courts have sharply censured, will stop. We hope that the use of these orders will stop immediately.” Zarog could be released from remand at any moment upon signing on an agreement to the administrative distancing order and the additional restrictive conditions set by the Lod District Court. As of this posting, Zarog continues to refuse to sign on the order and demands that it be cancelled. “I will not agree to sign on a draconian administrative order that determines with a piece of paper that I can be distanced from the Land of Israel and from my home,” declared Zarog.
