Israel's supreme court orders expulsion of Human Rights Watch campaigner

Israel's highest court on Tuesday ordered the deportation of Omar Shakir, a Human Rights Watch (HRW) campaigner on Israel and Palestine, after the government accused him of supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

The order came after an appeal lodged by HRW against a previous judgement made by another court to support Israel's decision to deport Shakir was rejected.

In its judgement, the supreme court said that Israel's interior ministry had not made the wrong decision when it decided against renewing Shakir's visa.
