Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's attorney, Attorney Michael Rabilo, rejected this evening (Sunday) the appeal to the High Court due to the violation of the settlement of affairs he signed and claimed that "the decision on the matter mentioned in the petition is not within the authority of the Supreme Court, and therefore the petition should be rejected outright ".
This morning the Movement for the Quality of Government submitted a request to the High Court to hold Netanyahu in contempt of court, following his speech last week, in which he announced that he had "entered the event" of the legal revolution. According to the movement, Netanyahu does not respect the ruling of the court, and requested that he be fined or even imprisoned To this Netanyahu responded, "It would have been appropriate to reject the petition outright, since the petitioners sought to replace the people's elected officials and depose an incumbent prime minister without a decision and without any authority."
According to Netanyahu's lawyer, the appeal to the High Court is "a very serious attempt to drag the judicial system into the political cauldron and make it decide contrary to the law and contrary to the decision of the elected democratic institutions, and this without any express authority in the law.
No word games will be able to hide the fact that there is an attempt here to uproot the idea of the sovereignty of the people and carry out a governmental coup under the auspices of the honorable court."
