MK Hershowitz Demands Compensation from Givat Assaf


An attorney for Science Minister Daniel Hershkowitz wrote to residents of the Binyamin-region Jewish community of Giv'at Assaf, demanding that they pay him 100,000 shekels in compensation for libel, it was learned, Tuesday.

The beginning of the letter cites the community for various remarks that appeared on the internet and other media Friday and Shabbat, and demands an apology on all the websites, as big as the the libelous material.
