Supreme Court severs ties with Ayelet Shaked over ‘gun to the head’ threats

In an unprecedented counterattack, Supreme Court President Miriam Naor on Thursday severed relations with Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked regarding negotiations over appointments of future justices.

The decision was made in light of the justice minister’s "gun to the head" threats she has made through the media about pushing a law through the Knesset to allow her and the political echelon to appoint judges against the Supreme Court’s wishes.
