Four Thai foreign workers who confessed to illegally hunting partridges will be deported in the coming days after their appeal was rejected by the Tel Aviv District Court.

A Nature and Parks Authority (NPA) investigation was launched at the end of December after a bag of feathers was found, and led to the confessions and subsequent deportation orders.

The NPA had previously made efforts to explain to the Thai foreign worker population that hunting partridges in Israel was illegal, the government agency said Sunday.

The four appealed against the deportation order but the judge rejected their appeal late last week on the grounds that they were fully aware that it was illegal to hunt partridges.
