OccupyTLV, August 13 -- compulsory psychiatric hospitalization of Joelle Ben Simone came to an end this past Tuesday, with her release from Eitanim hospital in Jerusalem. Only then were the underlying records discovered through the efforts of activists and several attorneys, who came to her assistance.
The records are published, with Ben Simone's agreement, as part of her protest.
Ben Simone protested for four days in front of the office of Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked against family court corruption. She demanded to speak with the Minister. Finally, Minister Shaked agreed to speak with her for a few minutes.
Soon after, steps were taken to force Ben Simone into psychiatric hospitalization.
The law in Israel is clear, involuntary admission is permitted only if the person poses immediate, material danger to self or others. The records show how the law was abused.
