Almagor to Appeal Prisoner Release


The Almagor umbrella group of terror-victim organizations announced, on Friday, that it will file an appeal with the Supreme Court against the release of 1,027 security prisoners in exchange for abducted Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

Earlier in the day, Dov Kalmanovich, considered the first victim of the first intifada Arab uprising in 1987, advised bereaved families against filing such petitions. The chairman of the Zochrim (We Remember) organization told Arutz Sheva that the court will not stop the release process and that the appeal process is a waste of time."
