A court in Beer Sheva on Wednesday denied a request by Yigal Amir to be allowed to attend a bar mitzvah for his son over the weekend.

Amir assassinated Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin almost exactly 25 years ago.

Amir submitted a request to the prison authorities, which it denied, and then appealed to the court, which denied his request.

“The decision to reject the petitioner’s request for leave or vacation for his son’s bar mitzvah was made against the background of material and relevant considerations, including and in particular considerations of national security and public safety in all their aspects, and therefore the petition should be rejected,” the state told the court.

Minister of Economy Amit Peretz, the head of the Labor party which Rabin led, lauded the court’s decision.

“On the 25th anniversary of Rabin’s assassination, the request itself is disgusting and shocking, and justice was decisive in his case, as we demanded,” he stated.

Amir married Larissa Trimbobler through an intermediary, and their son was born in 2007. He has yet to be granted furlough.

Amir is serving a life sentence without the possibility of pardon, in a special cell, and in solitary confinement. Recently, he was deprived of the opportunity to call his family members, following his violation of prison laws.
