Mandelblit, who made Kotel deal, says he will not enforce it as A-G

Avichai Mandelblit, who negotiated the January Kotel deal between the non-Orthodox movements and the haredi leadership when he was cabinet secretary has announced that he will not fight to enforce the deal in his current capacity as attorney-general.

In a letter responding to MK Tamar Zandberg’s (Meretz) request to him to help unfreeze the deal, provided to The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday, Mandelblit’s top adviser, Dr. Gil Limon, said on his behalf that the issue carried “emphatically political characteristics which do not require the decision of the attorney-general.”
