Gilad Shalit asked to renew driver's license

Letter automatically sent from Transportation Ministry to kidnapped soldier's home summons Gilad to routine renewal of driver's license five years after it was issued

The Transportation Ministry sent the Shalit family a letter summoning Gilad, who has been in Hamas captivity in the Gaza Strip for more than four years – to renew his driver's license, as five years have passed since he issued it.


The letter, which was sent last month, also includes a warning that failure to follow the procedure within six months will cause the license's suspension. Sources from the Free Gilad campaign said Sunday the matter is clearly a misunderstanding casued by an automatic dispatch of the letter.

Nevertheless, a source in the campaign HQ noted cynically that efforts to release Gilad must now be expedited to prevent the license from being revoked.


The Shalit family and dozens of its supporters are scheduled to demonstrate outside the Prime Minister's Office on Monday while the weekly cabinet meeting takes place.
