Dear Sir,

Re: Order regarding Prevention of Infiltration (Amendment No. 2) and Order regarding
Security Provisions (Amendment No. 112)

1. I hereby appeal to you regarding the orders cited in the heading which were signed on October 13, 2009 and are due to come into effect on April 13, 2010. These orders substantially alter the law regarding any person currently present in the West Bank, and, regrettably, prior to their signing no public debate allowing for input by actors outside the military, including human rights organizations such as HaMoked: Center for the Defence of the Individual was held. In the time that has passed since the orders were signed, we have studied their provisions and we now wish to present you with our comments, before the orders come into effect.
