Michaeli Accepts Suspension

Following Tuesday's decision of the Knesset Ethics Committee to suspend her for a month for throwing a cupful of water on Member of Knesset Ghaleb Majadle on Monday, Knesset Member Anastassia Michaeli repeated her Monday-evening apology for the incident, noting "the aggravation caused to my party and other Knesset members."

The Yisrael Beiteinu lawmaker continued, "There is no place for such behavior in such a respected place as the Knesset, if at all, even if it is an agitation arising from the innermost insulted place." She concluded, "Needless to say there is much more work in the Knesset session and I am committed to complete it".
