AG’s office to HJC: Migron must be evacuated

The Attorney general’s office on Monday issued its strongest statement yet in favor of evacuating the West Bank Migron outpost by August 28th.
“According to the state’s position it is not feasible at this time from a legal and technical perspective for the petitioners (outpost residents) to continue living in Migron and for the structures (their homes) to remain where they are,” the attorney general’s office told the High Court of Justice on Monday.
As a result, it said, the High Court of Justice’s ruling ordering the evacuation of the outpost must be upheld.
The Attorney general’s office, however, did request a 90-day delay in the evacuation of some of the outpost structures, pending an investigation into the legality of a purchase claim by Migron residents.
