MK Zoabi Responds to Suspension Announcement


MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) responded on Tuesday to the decision made by the Knesset’s Board of Ethics to suspend her for six months from all Knesset activity. “This is an unauthorized political decision, which is anti-democratic and tyrannical…”

According to Zoabi, the decision “Was made during a wartime atmosphere and expresses a vengeful and fascist approach. Instead of protecting my freedom of speech and my parliamentary immunity, I am being avenged for my views…” She added that she will appeal the Ethics Board’s decision to the High Court.
