MK Lavie Calls for Firing of Abusive Judge

MK Dr. Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) has called for the immediate end of tenure of a judge sitting on the Beer Sheva Magistrate's Court bench for questioning a witness in a civil dispute between neighbors in an abusive manner.

"A sitting judge who would ask a witness whether or not she was a 'prostitute' cannot be allowed to rule on even one more case," stated Chairman of the Committee on the Status of Women, MK Aliza Lavie. "

"How a person such as this even obtains the position of judge demonstrates the need for further training and vetting of those who stand to be appointed to the position," she added.
