Grunis Slams Neeman over Balance of Power Bill

Supreme Court President Asher Grunis criticized Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman on Tuesday over a proposed bill that would define the balance of power between the Knesset and the Supreme Court, and would allow an absolute Knesset majority to re-legislate laws cancelled by the Supreme Court.

“The current version of the bill raises many difficulties,” Grunis said. He called for “cooperation and dialog between all relevant parties,” and warned that without change the bill could be “a cause for tears for generations.”
