Making nice before the battle? Shaked and Naor hold first meeting

Following weeks of reports of an imminent war between the two over the powers of the state’s judicial branch, Supreme Court President Miriam Naor and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked on Tuesday met in Naor’s chambers for their first working meeting.

Photos of the meeting show Shaked, 39, with her trademark smile from ear to ear shaking hands and holding arms with Naor, who at 67, had been a lawyer in the state prosecutor’s office for several years when Shaked was born.

Naor’s smile is much more low-key, but then again she does not have a broad smile in the courtroom either, with a toned down manner than is only betrayed when her sarcasm kicks in to strike down unprepared lawyers.
