AFRICANGLOBE - Israel's Interior Ministry’s Population, Immigration and Border Authority announced on Monday morning that it had ceased summoning asylum seekers to the Holot detention facility, but its officials have continued to order Africans to the facility. The authority is also refusing to cancel summonses given out after the High Court of Justice ruled that the Holot center must be closed within 90 days.
AFRICANGLOBE - Israel's High Court of Justice ordered the state on Monday to close the Holot concentration camp for African refugees within 90 days, a dramatic decision that marked the first time the court has ever struck down two versions of the same law.

AFRICANGLOBE - Israeli authorities are effectively detaining hundreds of Eritrean and Sudanese asylum seekers despite an Israeli High Court order for their release. More than 150 of the migrants ignored the rules restricting their mobility and walked out of what they called an "open prison" in the Negev desert to march toward Jerusalem in protest.
