That writes The Guardian. Huppert told the British newspaper that he has had an exit ban since 2013, which applies until the year 9999. Probably that year was set arbitrarily because it was the longest possible date allowed by the online system.
Huppert’s then-husband, who is an Israeli national, moved back to the country in 2011, when their children were three months and five years old. Huppert followed in 2012, but they soon separated.
Huppert’s ex-wife filed a case against her then-husband in 2013. He was given a so-called ‘deferral of departure’ from the government so that he could not leave the country. The court then decided that Huppert could not leave the country unless he paid alimony. Huppert would have to pay 5000 shekels (more than 1400 euros) every month to his two children until they turned 18.
It is not clear, according to The Guardian, whether Huppert has made payments so far, or whether he still has to pay the entire amount to be allowed to leave the country again.
