The Supreme Court on Monday made it clear that it did not believe Nobel Peace Prize winner Mairead Maguire's claim that she did not know about the deportation order issued against her earlier this year for 10 years when she arrived in Israel last week.

Supreme Court President Dorit Benisch suggested to the state to allow her to remain in the country until Wednesday when a series of meetings she was scheduled to attend were scheduled to end.

Benisch along with Justice Asher Grunis indicated that for "overall" reasons, which they did not explain, the state are to consider that option. Nevertheless, Benisch added that she was certain Maguire knew about the deportation order, and did not come to Israel in good faith or with "friendly intentions."
