Dalia Ravizada. Only court can help
Famillies of missing Iranian Jews petition High Court
Relatives of 12 Iranian Jews who disappeared while trying to immigrate to Israel in 1990s demand government not reveal information about four Iranian diplomats in deal with Hizbullah, fulfill obligation to search for their family members
The families of the 12 missing Iranian Jews who disappeared while trying to immigrate to Israel in the 1990s, petitioned the High Court of Justice on Monday, demanding not to reveal information about the four Iranian diplomats as part of the imminent prisoner exchange deal with Hizbullah – without advancing the search for their relatives.

 

The families petitioned the High Court back in 2004, before Israel’s last deal with Hizbullah. The appeal was postponed but the government promised to continue making an effort to track down information regarding their fate. Since then, the families say they have been left in the dark.

 

As part of approving the current deal with Hizbullah, the government agreed to convey information via the UN, concerning the fate of the Iranian diplomats who disappeared in Beirut during the Lebanon War.

 

Dalia Ravizada, whose father Nuriel disappeared together with 11 other Jews throughout the years 1994-1997 told Ynet Sunday: “No one is responding to our demands and we have no one to turn to anymore – only the High Court can help us.”
