      Ass't A-G to MK Gal-On: 'Price Tag' Unlawful, Not Terror Organization

      In a letter sent to MK Zahava Gal-On (Meretz) by the Deputy Attorney-General, Raz Nazri clarified the government's position that 'price tag' acts came under the auspices of an "illegal association", and not a terror organization. The letter was in reply to a recent request the MK made to have 'Price Tag" actions recognized as a terrorist organization.

      Nazri, the Senior Assistant to the Attorney-General, wrote to Gal-On that "Upon examining law enforcement's coping strategies with regards to 'Price Tag' actions, the Ministry of Justice was asked to examine the judicial feasibility of recognizing 'Price Tag' actions as terrorist activity, according to the Terror Prevention regulations, or if it was a transgression of the Security regulations."
