Migron Attorney: State Cannot Change Position

An attorney representing 17 families from the Binyamin-region Jewish community of Migron told the Supreme Court, Tuesday, that the families should be allowed to stay because the government was on record as saying that if their purchase of the land was properly executed, the political echelon would approve the property and positively consider reguation of the community's property."

Referring to last week's submission by state attorneys to the High Court that the residents should be evicted in spite of the land purchase, attorney Ze'ev Scharf said, "The state cannot zigzag and if the residents purchased the property, they must be allowed to approve and regulate the place. There are Housing and Construction Ministry development plans on the area which were approved by the council and access paths that don't pass on private [Arab -ed.] property so there is no problem with the planning of the area."
