Rabbinical Court: Deri Can't be a Minister

A rabbinical court in Jerusalem recently issued an injunction prohibiting MK Aryeh Deri, one of the leaders of the Shas party, to be appointed to any ministerial position in the next government, it was reported on Thursday.

The court issued the injunction after Deri refused to appear before it in a hearing on a lawsuit filed against Shas ministers who abstained during a Knesset vote on the Oslo Accords.
