Hebron activists to High Court: Peace Now lied in its petition

October 7, 2007 22:59

The Organization to Renew the Jewish Community in Hebron on Sunday asked the High Court of Justice to throw out a petition demanding that it overrule an army appeal's committee decision to suspend the eviction of families who illegally took over two stores in downtown Hebron. The organization accused Hagit Ofran, head of Peace Now's Settlement Watch of lying by charging that the appeals court was in collusion with the Hebron settlers in order to allow them to remain in the stores. Since Ofran was a vital force in the Peace Now petition and had allegedly lied when she said the committee and the settlers were collaborating, the petition should be rejected, the committee charged. Orit Struck, head of Judea and Samaria Human Rights also lodged a complaint against Ofran with the police, charging her with contempt of court and insulting a public servant.
