Supreme Court strikes ‘Rwanda’ from transcript on migrants and transparency

The whole world may know that Israel is deporting certain migrants to Rwanda and a range of pro-migrant groups may be attacking the state for a lack of transparency in the deportation process, but that did not stop the Supreme Court from striking all mentions of the word “Rwanda” from its transcript of Tuesday’s hearing on the issue.

On November 8, the Beersheba District Court, in its administrative capacity, rejected a request by the groups, led by the Refugee Rights Clinic at Tel Aviv University and the Hotline for Refugees and Migrants, to strike down the state’s current policy of imprisoning migrants denied refugee status indefinitely if they refuse self-deportation to an unnamed third country.
