Migron Residents: Prosecute Mike Blass for Perjury


Residents of the Binyamin-region community of Migron called, Thursday, for prosecuting Deputy Attorney General Mike Blass for perjury. The call came during a protest outside the Justice Ministry against this week's statement by state attorneys to the Supreme Court that it was the state's position that the residents should be removed from Migron by August 28th.

The resident's said a statement by Blass on the subject did not reflect reality and was misleading, explaining that about a month ago, the Ministerial Committee on Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) said it was ready to approve the purchase of property by Migron's Jewish residence if it could be proven that the purchase was proper. There was no change in that position by this week's Supreme Court hearing, and the residents feel the state attorney's position will prevent a fair discussion.
