The Constitutional Court Postpones, Considering PCHR’s Petition Challenging the Constitutionality of the Ministerial Amendment Made to the Executive Bill of Charitable Associations and Community Organizations Law

Ref: 54/2012

 

Today, 07 June 2012, the Supreme Court in Gaza, in its capacity as
the constitutional court, adjourned the consideration of the petition filed by
the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) challenging the decision made by
the Council of Ministers in Gaza no. 299/2011. 
The ministerial decision was issued to amend the Council of Ministers’
decision no. 9/2003 Concerning the Executive Bill of the Charitable
Associations and Community Organizations Law 1/2002.

 

It is proposed, according to the Court’s decision, that the above-mentioned
petition be reconsidered by the court
on 18 June 2012.  Thus, both PCHR, as the appellant party, and
the prosecution, representing the respondent, have to present their legal
arguments within a week from the date of the decision.

 

PCHR’s lawyers stressed in today’s hearing what had been stated in
the petition, confirming their demands,[1]
while the prosecutor presented his plea.

 

It should be noted that PCHR filed a constitutional petition before
said Court on 30 April 2012, following a series of meetings with the
Palestinian NGO Network and human rights organizations in the Gaza Strip, in
which PCHR requested the respondent, represented by the prosecution, to reveal
the reasons for issuing the decision in violation of the law.  In addition, PCHR requested non-application
of this decision pending determination of the petition, in addition to issuing
a final ruling nullifying the challenged decision.
