Israel to Appeal Freeze of Detention Orders for Asylum Seekers

Prosecutors criticize initial lower court decision to suspend detention orders of 13 Africans, warn that it undermines the public interest.

The state has asked for leave to appeal the decision by the Central District Court earlier this month to freeze 13 orders issued to asylum seekers from Eritrea and Sudan to report to the Holot detention center, after the 13 appealed the summonses.
