(Worthy News) – The High Court of Justice on Thursday rejected a petition seeking Benjamin Netanyahu’s removal as prime minister over his ongoing criminal trial.
In their ruling, the justices wrote they found no grounds to make such an intervention at the moment, though they said there “exists a difficulty” in the fact that a prime minister is accused of “grave crimes,” both in terms of “his ability to devote his full time to and energy to his role and in terms of the harm to public trust.”
The judges left the door open to potentially disqualifying Netanyahu at a later stage, but concurred with Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit’s opinion that there are currently no grounds to rule Netanyahu cannot fulfill his duty. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]
