Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein decided on Monday that calling on people to harbor foreign workers families who face deportation is not an act of revolt and is not prosecutable by law.

Weinstein wrote in a letter to Interior Minister Eli Yishai that he failed to find grounds for a criminal investigation against social activists who had called on the public to hide children of foreign workers facing deportation.

The letter was submitted in response to a request by Yishai, in September, to prosecute activists who he said advocated actions that went counter to cabinet decisions.
