Ahmed Awad has petitioned the High Court of Justice to force the army to finish its inquiry into the shooting death of his son Samir, 16, on January 15, 2013 by the security barrier near the West Bank village of Budrus. He has filed his suit together with the Israeli nongovernmental group B’Tselem, who has worked to highlight Awad’s case. They are represented in their suit by Gabi Lasky. “This is not a petition on the substance but on the procedural issue of needing a response,” said B’Tslem spokeswoman Sarit Michaeli. Completing an investigation promptly within a reasonable period of time is an obligation, it's not some kind of favor, she said.
