Supreme Court Justice Yoram Danziger criticized the police for negligence in the investigation of Sadi Saleh on suspicion of igniting a cellular tower in Beit Jann. The court found that the police failed to examine all footage from security cameras, yet this negligence does not amount to a reasonable doubt in Saleh’s responsibility for the crime.

Judge Yoram Danziger of the High Court of Justice issued a temporary injunction prohibiting further construction in the illegal settlement Migron, which Palestinian residents of the village Burqa claim was built on private Palestinian land. In a previous hearing, during 2006, the State promised to evacuate the illegal settlement until August 2008. When the deadline passed with no evacuation taking place, the government informed the court that the settlers would be evacuated only after the completion of a new neighborhood for them in a nearby settlement. However, construction activities in Migron continued, most recently with settlers starting construction of three new permanent installations.

The Supreme Court has decided that the separation between men and women on buses will become a permanent arrangement. A three-judge panel today (Thursday) adopted the arrangement initiated by the Ministry of Transportation which permits separation between men and women on Mehadrin lines – the bus routes which primarily serve the ultra-orthodox (haredi) population. Under this arrangement, the separation will be consensual, and no force or violence will be applied to women passengers. The arrangement further states that the Ministry of Transportation will enforce the arrangement with an inspection system. The decision maintains the current condition, where women do not sit in the front part of the bus on Mehadrin lines. (Hebrew)
