Almagor Files Suit to Prevent Prisoner Move to Jordan
Israel National News
Almagor, the Terror Victims Association, has filed a petition with the High Court of Justice in a bid to stop the government from transferring four Jordanian terrorist prisoners to serve the remainder of their prison terms in their native country.
The four were convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the murder of two IDF soldiers in two separate terrorist attacks in the Jordan Valley 17 years ago. The government decided to allow the transfer as a concession to a request by Jordan’s King Abdullah II.
Sunday’s court petition was co-signed by the mother of Sgt. Pinchas Levy, one of the two murdered soldiers. The other murder victim was Capt. Yehuda Lipshitz.
