MKs Call for Nitzan's Removal
After protests all over the country against the arrest of Rabbi Dov Lior Monday, MKs called for the removal of deputy State Attorney General Shai Nitzan and his staff, who initiated the investigation and questioning of Rav Lior over his endorsement of the book “Torat Hamelech.” Twenty MKs have signed a petition demanding that Nitzan be removed from his post over abuse of power.
A protest was held Monday night outside Nitzan's house. Several protesters were arrested in that demonstration. Altogether 17 activists have been arrested in protests.
