Court: TA municipality must treat homeless with dignity

November 21, 2012 05:14

The Tel Aviv Municipality must treat its homeless with dignity, and cannot clear and take away their possessions left in public spaces except for very specific reasons, said Judge Michal Agmon-Gonen of the Tel Aviv District Court on Monday.

The petition was filed by the Association for Civil Rights in Israel to block the municipality from confiscating the possessions and essentially accused it of trying to push the homeless, a large number of who happen to be migrants, out of the public space.

In the ruling, the court said that the municipality’s actions were not proportionate to addressing the problem at hand.
