Rivlin to File Complaint Against Michaeli

Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin said, Monday, that he would file a complaint with the Knesset Ethics Committee against Member of Knesset Anastassia Michaeli (Yisrael Beiteinu), who dashed a cup of water on Knesset member Ghaleb Majadle during a meeting of the Knesset Education Committee. Rivlin said, "This is an act which apparently violates the Knesset as a whole." He added, "We will wait for the committee's conclusions and continue to discuss all the implications."

Michaeli has filed a complaint against Majadle.
