The Central District Court rejected a petition by Mohammed Karim Yones, a security prisoner, requesting the renewal of his university studies in the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.  The request was originally rejected by the Prison Service, claiming that studies are a privilege and that the prisoner can finish his studies after he is released, even though he is serving a life sentence.
