The National Security Minister, Itamar Ben-Gvir, cannot give police instructions on how to handle large-scale protests against the planned judicial reforms, the Israeli Supreme Court ruled on Sunday.
“The minister is not permitted to offer operational instructions about the implementation of policy, how force is employed, the means of dispersing demonstrations, and conditions surrounding the event’s time, place, and manner,” the ruling adds.
The judgment stated, “The Minister shall not, directly or indirectly, give operative instructions to the police, and this is particularly true for rallies and demonstrations against the Government.
It was made clear by Judge Yitzhak Amit that even a “mention” of Ben-policy Gvir’s at an operational event may be interpreted as a ministerial direction.
The Association for Civil Rights in Israel filed a petition, and the decision was made in response.
According to the Association for Civil Rights, the minister lacks the authority to influence how the police behave during demonstrations.
This was made abundantly plain to Minister Ben-Gvir by the court.
We’ll keep an eye on Ben-driving Gvir’s and won’t hold back from going back to court if it seems like he’s still acting as the chief commissioner to put an end to the protests.
The minister should not be allowed to establish policy on a touchy subject like demonstrations, as shown by the recent occurrences, the human rights organization continued.
