Court convicts lawyers for helping client who ordered murder of a judge

The Jerusalem District Court on Sunday convicted two lawyers of improper conduct for helping – with mysterious fund transfers – a client who ordered the murder of a judge.

The ruling could have wide-ranging implications in placing a greater duty on lawyers to question their clients’ requests, if the requests appear suspicious, even if lawyers have no definite information that the requests involve illegality.

The two lawyers are Sagiv Bar Shalom and Mor Garti, both of whom have represented Yitzhak Zuziashvili, who is serving prison time for ordering the murder of Tel Aviv judge Adi Azar in July 2004.
