The High Court of Justice on Thursday issued a show-cause order asking the state to explain why the police refused to grant a permit for a vigil outside the homes of Shas ministers Eli Yishai and Ariel Atias.

The petition was filed by attorney Itzhak Bam on behalf of Ro’i David Reeder, who wanted to hold a protest outside their homes to pressure them into voting in the security cabinet against the three-month building freeze on Jewish settlements and illegal outposts which Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu wants to impose.

During Thursday’s brief hearing, Bam was not sure whether the vigil was supposed to be a protest one or one supporting the ministers because it was not clear how they would vote on the prime minister’s motion. Justice Asher Grunis asked the state to reply to the petition by Sunday.

Because of the strike of the state prosecution attorneys, the state was not represented at Thursday’s hearing.
