We are not aware of plans to bar access to the Israeli High Court for Palestinians in the West Bank. We are aware of a draft law which would seek to insist that petitions to the High Court are only filed by those individuals directly impacted by a law (and not non-governmental organisations or other organisations acting on their behalf). Our Embassy sought clarifications about this proposed law from the relevant authorities on 15 March.
