Morning

 

lding committee, Nasser’s employer, they confirmed that the permit is perfectly fine. The policeman wanted to return the permit to Nasser  but another diligent policeman intervened and said: you throw stones, you are prevented from entering! And confiscated the permit.

Nasser hired a lawyer who made an inquiry and found out that indeed, Nasser has an open case for stone throwing. For 4 months already she is handling the closing of the case and in the meantime Nassar is unemployed. The day after the shift we got Nasser a "Certificate of Good Conduct" that says they finally closed the case for lack of evidence. A Day later Nassar called to say that fortunately he got a permit.

2.     Another Nasser from the village of Walaja, is 42 years old. We met him at Etzion DCL. He lives with his family on the edge of the village by the separation wall, and as he says: "in my grandfather's house since “1948”. A month ago they took his permit and informed him of that he is 'intelligence prevented'. In other words - someone informed that he had criminal intentions and before they even checked he is already police restricted without time limit. When he tried to find out what was the matter they offered him "to work with the police," that is - to incriminate others the way he was incriminated.

Nasser's father worked in Evan Sapir since 1967 and Nassar used to come with him to Evan Sapir since he was 8-9 years old. He worked there since his youth, and for him this is a second home. Two worried people from Evan Sapir called us.  Yaniv said: I'm his age, we grew up together. We have been working together for many years, how can you stop his restriction?

And Knest Member Ofer Sehla immediately sent a letter of recommendation demanding to return him to work. This letter is required in order to file an appeal on the restriction, and later for a petition to the court. All this will take many months and there is no guarantee that it will help remove the restriction.

3.     Every day before 08:00  we find out if there are policemen in Etzion DCL and Hebron DCL, so that we could at least warn those who call us that there is no point in going to DCL today. On Tuesday 24/3/15 we inquired. A. the officer of these two policemen said: there are no policemen in the DCLs today. A regional conference is being held (!)

At about 11:00 our friend Hannah B. called us very upset (and later reported this on the network). She is at Etzion DCL and in the waiting hall there are five people waiting for the policeman since morning. When she called the soldiers in DCL to ask why they are not letting people in to see the policeman, they responded that there is no policeman. It did not occur to any of them to inform people not to wait hours to no avail.

In the waiting room at Etzion DCL there is a big, nice announcement in Arabic with the office hours of the policeman held every day.

Necessary to know:

To find out about a police restriction one has to provide:

1. A Form from the DCL policeman where it’s written till when the man is restricted and how they calculated the time limit. This is a punishment inflicted by the police. Most often it is longer than the “condition” the court imposed.

Limiting entry is police restriction.

2.  Criminal Record (Certificate of Good Conduct is its laundered name) where all the files the man has with the police are noted.

Without these documents it is impossible to know whether to file an appeal on restriction ("compassion" in the language of the people) and what to write in it. The appeal, in 98% cases does not help.

Criminal Record can be obtained only from the police. Only three police stations are accessible to Palestinians: in Hebron, Etzion and near Ramallah. From Ramallah and north - only a lawyer with a power of attorney can obtain a Criminal Record for Palestinians.

The “Form” is supposed to be obtained from DCL policeman.

Our regular route on Monday morning is on Route 60, from Jerusalem to the entrance to Halhul (Nabi Yunis). At 07:30 at the entrance to Husan, at 8.00 Nashash at the entrance to Al Khader, at 8:30 at the entrance to Beit Omer, 9.00 Nabi Yunis at the entrance to Halhul, at10:00 Etzion DCL.

The shift, and things people told us

At ou  

r various stations we met people who came to consult on matters of police and GSS restrictions and other matters.

Here some of the  cases:

1.     Nasser, our old acquaintance from Beit Omer, 48 years old, worked for 10 years in Ma’ale Adumim, in cleaning, with a permit. 4 months ago a policeman was passing a street in Ma'ale Adumim, met Nasser, asked to see his permit and said: the permit is forged. Nassar was taken to the police station and from there the policeman called the building committee, Nasser’s employer, they confirmed that the permit is perfectly fine. The policeman wanted to return the permit to Nasser  but another diligent policeman intervened and said: you throw stones, you are prevented from entering! And confiscated the permit.

Nasser hired a lawyer who made an inquiry and found out that indeed, Nasser has an open case for stone throwing.

And Knest Member Ofer Sehla immediately sent a letter of recommendation demanding to return him to work. This letter is required in order to file an appeal on the restriction, and later for a petition to the court. All this will take many months and there is no guarantee that it will help remove the restriction.

3.     Every day before 08:00  we find out if there are policemen in Etzion DCL and Hebron DCL, so that we could at least warn those who call us that there is no point in going to DCL today. On Tuesday 24/3/15 we inquired. A. the officer of these two policemen said: there are no policemen in the DCLs today. A regional conference is being held (!)

At about 11:00 our friend Hannah B. called us very upset (and later reported this on the network). She is at Etzion DCL and in the waiting hall there are five people waiting for the policeman since morning. When she called the soldiers in DCL to ask why they are not letting people in to see the policeman, they responded that there is no policeman. It did not occur to any of them to inform people not to wait hours to no avail.

In the waiting room at Etzion DCL there is a big, nice announcement in Arabic with the office hours of the policeman held every day.

Necessary to know:

To find out about a police restriction one has to provide:

1. A Form from the DCL policeman where it’s written till when the man is restricted and how they calculated the time limit. This is a punishment inflicted by the police. Most often it is longer than the “condition” the court imposed.

Limiting entry is police restriction.

2.  Criminal Record (Certificate of Good Conduct is its laundered name) where all the files the man has with the police are noted.

Without these documents it is impossible to know whether to file an appeal on restriction ("compassion" in the language of the people) and what to write in it. The appeal, in 98% cases does not help.

Criminal Record can be obtained only from the police. Only three police stations are accessible to Palestinians: in Hebron, Etzion and near Ramallah. From Ramallah and north - only a lawyer with a power of attorney can obtain a Criminal Record for Palestinians.

The “Form” is supposed to be obtained from DCL policeman.

23/3/2015 Bethlehem 
Tova Shid, Haya A. (reporting), Translation: Naomi Gal

Our regular route on Monday morning is on Route 60, from Jerusalem to the entrance to Halhul (Nabi Yunis). At 07:30 at the entrance to Husan, at 8.00 Nashash at the entrance to Al Khader, at 8:30 at the entrance to Beit Omer, 9.00 Nabi Yunis at the entrance to Halhul, at10:00 Etzion DCL.

The shift, and things people told us

At our various stations we met people who came to consult on matters of police and GSS restrictions and other matters.

Here some of the  cases:

1.     Nasser, our old acquaintance from Beit Omer, 48 years old, worked for 10 years in Ma’ale Adumim, in cleaning, with a permit. 4 months ago a policeman was passing a street in Ma'ale Adumim, met Nasser, asked to see his permit and said: the permit is forged. Nassar was taken to the police station and from there the policeman called the building committee, Nasser’s employer, they confirmed that the permit is perfectly fine. The policeman wanted to return the permit to Nasser  but another diligent policeman intervened and said: you throw stones, you are prevented from entering! And confiscated the permit.

Nasser hired a lawyer who made an inquiry and found out that indeed, Nasser has an open case for stone throwing. For 4 months already she is handling the closing of the case and in the meantime Nassar is unemployed. The day after the shift we got Nasser a "Certificate of Good Conduct" that says they finally closed the case for lack of evidence. A Day later Nassar called to say that fortunately he got a permit.

2.     Another Nasser from the village of Walaja, is 42 years old. We met him at Etzion DCL. He lives with his family on the edge of the village by the separation wall, and as he says: "in my grandfather's house since “1948”. A month ago they took his permit and informed him of that he is 'intelligence prevented'. In other words - someone informed that he had criminal intentions and before they even checked he is already police restricted without time limit. When he tried to find out what was the matter they offered him "to work with the police," that is - to incriminate others the way he was incriminated.

Nasser's father worked in Evan Sapir since 1967 and Nassar used to come with him to Evan Sapir since he was 8-9 years old. He worked there since his youth, and for him this is a second home. Two worried people from Evan Sapir called us.  Yaniv said: I'm his age, we grew up together. We have been working together for many years, how can you stop his restriction?
