Ruvi Ziegler talks about the Israeli government’s plan to reform the judicial system

The invite to the interview was prompted by the following quote from Ruvi posted in the Jewish News

‘‘The Israeli government states that it seeks to ‘reform’ Israel’s legal system. In reality, the legal changes it seeks to implement will significantly weaken constitutional review of human rights violations, leaving Israel’s already vulnerable minorities subject to the exercise of untrammelled power by its majority.” He said the changes would also “undermine the independence of the judiciary by altering a long-standing balanced Judicial Appointment Committee, handing over absolute power to the government of the day.” ”Given the severity of the threat to Israel’s democratic character, it is vital to speak out against these dangerous proposals.’’
