Steinitz Attacks Supreme Court on Price Tag of Rulings

Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz attacked the Supreme Court on Monday for not considering the economic impact of its rulings. Speaking at the Israel Business Conference, he cited the recent ruling against turning a prison over to private management and recognition of child-care expenses, even if it was not put into effect.

Dr. Steinitz said that he and Justice Minister Ya'akov Ne'eman were looking at legislative ways to make the court take the financial impact of its rulings into consideration. The former head of the Knesset Defense and Foreign Affairs Committee gave the court credit for acting responsibly in security matters.
