Hershkowitz: I'll Vote Against Nitzan Appointment

Bayit Yehudi head and Science Minister Daniel Hershkowitz said that he would opposed the appointment of Shai Nitzan as an advisor for “special missions” in the State Attorneys office  at Sunday's cabinet meeting. “There is already a crisis of trust between prosecutors and the community in Judea and Samaria,” he said. Appointing Nitzan to a task that would put him in confrontation with the community “will just deepen the crisis,” he said.

On Friday, Likud activists sent dozens of text messages to government ministers urging them to oppose Nitzan's appointment.
