PM: Levy Was Straight As An Arrow; Didn't Hesitate to Voice His Opinion


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu expressed his sorrow this evening (Tuesday) upon being apprised of the death of former justice Edmond Levy.

"I bow my head at the passing of Justice Edmond Levy. He was one of Israel's senior judges. He went through every stage of judicial system before reaching his position on the Supreme Court, where he left a deep and long lasting mark," Netanyahu said.

"Levy was a man quick of mind, with an extraordinary intellectual grasp and the ability to analyze the most complex of situations," the Prime Minister continued, adding that "He flew straight as an arrow, and he never feared to express himself on the most controversial of subjects, The People of Israel, the State of Israel, the Land of Israel - these were always his top priority."
