Knesset member Amir Ohana (Likud) will present to the Knesset a bill that extends the powers of the Minister of internal Affairs on deprivation of the status of permanent residents of persons involved in offences against state security, reports the website of NRG.
The bill will be submitted against the decision of the high Court overturned the decision of the former Minister of the interior Roni Ban She adopted in 2006, on deprivation of the status of permanent residents of four Palestinian politicians from Hamas.
According to the judges of the high Court, the interior Minister decided, without having on that powers.
However, the court gave the Israeli government six months to accept the amendment, which would allow to deprive of the status of the appellants legally.
Amir Ohana proposes to expand the powers of the Minister of internal Affairs, leaving to his discretion the question of the withdrawal of the permanent resident status of anyone who has committed offences against the security of the state.
