A senior member of the Shomron (Samaria) Residents' Committee said, Thursday, that he was questioned by the police, this week, about a petition filed eight months ago by the committee and residents of the Jewish outpost/hilltop community of Gil'ad's Farm (Havat Gil'ad), between the Jewish communities of Kedumim and Yitzhar, against the demolition of buildings there. The resident said he was asked questions relating to the petition, but the police said there was no connection.
Committee Chairman Benny Katzover said, "It appears to be a new policy. If the police decided to investigate people who appeal to court, what 's next? Maybe they won't allow residents to petition the Supreme Court."
