Land of Israel Legal Forum: Don't Select New AG Yet


General Manager Nachi Ayal of the Land of Israel Legal Forum said Friday that there was no point in selecting a new attorney general as long as no decision has been made on the nature of the job. Justice Minister Ya'akov Ne'eman has proposed splitting the job into two positions: chief prosecutor and legal advisor to the government.

Interviewed by Arutz Sheva in Hebrew, Ayal noted that the forum believes the time has come to split the two functions. He specificly opposed the candidacy of Deputy Prosecutor Shai Nitzan for the position, saying Nitzan circumvented the law when it came to the Jews of Judea and Samaria, even after he received comments from the state comptroller.
