High Court rejects Green Movement petition against Galant

January 19, 2011 11:30

The High Court on Wednesday rejected a petition by the Green Movement to issue a temporary injunction barring the appointment of Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant as chief of staff.

The judges ruled that they do not see fit at this time to issue the requested order.  The Green Movement made the request in the wake of the "land affair" in which allegations were made that Galant illegally occupied public lands and lands owned by the Israel Lands Authority and had been given favorable treatment regarding 35 additional dunams of agricultural land.
