Molla: Ne'eman Proposal Devious and Anti-Democratic


Member of Knesset Shlomo Molla (Kadima) attacked, Sunday, the proposal by Justice Minister Ya'akov Ne'eman, under which the Knesset could enact a law that had been invalidated by the Supreme Court.

Molla said, "The Justice Minister, as usual, is shooting from the hip with populist measures whose sole purpose is to find favor in the eyes of the prime minister and the right-wing coalition, which is trying incessantly to harm the rule of law. It's a perverse and anti-democratic decision which is contrary to the opinion of the members of the committee who discussed it, without consulting High Court President Asher Grunis. We will not lend our hand to this matter."
