Shaked: State prosecutors ignoring instruction to work with oversight czar ‘unwise’

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said on Monday that if it turns out to be true that the Union of State Prosecutors has told all state prosecutors to ignore her and Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein’s instruction to work with the oversight czar pending a reconfiguration of the oversight body that this would be a “bullying and unwise step, extremely irrational and arrogant.”

Earlier Monday, Ynet reported that the Union had instructed state prosecutors to boycott the oversight body despite orders from Shaked and Weinstein to cooperate with it.

Shaked added that in any case, “a proposed bill based on the principles suggested by [former Supreme Court justice Eliezer] Goldberg will be submitted in the coming weeks.”
