State attorney requests an extension from the court to submit its response regarding travel by students from Gaza to the West Bank
Gisha opposes the request as it creates an unrealistic deadline. Gisha has 15 days to respond to the state’s eventual submission. If the court accepts the request for an extension, we would have to respond by August 13th. The students must arrive at Birzeit University by the 15th in order to complete their registration and pay their tuition. Classes begin on August 22nd. Giving the state an extension would not leave the court enough time to render its decision. Gisha notified the court that it would agree to a week’s extension only.
