Three opponents of the Sri Lankan regime have been detained in Israel for two weeks and have been deprived of their rights, writes KAN Bet. According to the report, 13 have applied to Israel for accommodation in southern Israel after fleeing tourist visas after the October Revolution.
After questioning at the Ben Gurion airport, 11 men and two women, a member of the group that did not have a translator and who spoke on their behalf, were imprisoned for "Yakhalom."
During the week KAN Bet reported that they were forbidden to enter the outside world, banning phone calls, not allowing their personal things and changing clothing. In addition, they refused access to medicines. One of the members of the group suffering from kidney disease and diabetes was hospitalized in Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot. Later the band was transferred to Givon Prison.
Before they were sent to Jahala, one of the band members sent a message from his cell phone to the Sri Lanka community in Israel. The community has come to an outreach network for refugees and migrants.
After the talks, they were allowed to go to the office of Yahalom in order to listen to their story and obtain a power of attorney for the group.
From then on, a hotline for refugees and migrants, Tal Hardner, the lawyers went to the court as the state threatened to deport them immediately.
According to Shtetner, Yachalom is an extraterritorial territory and the laws of the state are not used here, so "the state has the power to temporarily and without prejudice".
The Gibon "Immigration Prison Tribunal" was found to be illegal and decided that members of the group should immediately be released, but the state appealed the regional court. The trial is held on Monday.
The Immigration Ministry's Resident and Immigration Officer responded that the Immigration Prison Tribunal had no right to listen to cases involving Israel's entry to the Immigration Prison and that the appeal was sent to the District Court.
"13 passengers crossed the border at Ben Gurion Airport and openly admitted that they came to work in Israel," the authorities said. "The subject of the asylum has never been raised, even when they are abandoned, but they are representative [lawyer] The first topic raised – this, of course, raises questions. «
