East Jerusalem Man Facing Eviction Says Harassed by Police

The High Court of Justice will deliberate in May over the request of the resident’s family to appeal a court order of eviction from their apartment so that it can be repossessed by the heirs of the pre-1948 Jewish owner.

An East Jerusalem resident who is requesting permission to appeal the eviction of his family from their home in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah claims that the police are harassing him and that he was even arrested on false charges.
