Channel 10 Petitions Supreme Court Against Netanyahu


Channel 10 Television filed a petition against Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the cabinet, Sunday, claiming the prime minister was thwarting the implementation of an agreement to keep the debt-ridden station going. The petition cites Netanyahu for instructing that the cabinet not discuss a memorandum of legislation to complete a recent package of loan guarantees, without explanation and contrary to the stand of Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, Communications Minister Moshe Kachlon and Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein.

If the memorandum is not approved, the station will close at the end of December.
