The Movement for the Quality of Government submitted a request to the High Court this morning (Sunday) to hold Prime Minister Benjamin 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 court's ruling, and requested sentence him to a fine or even prison. "A startling picture emerges, according to which the prime minister is making a judgment for himself while violating his conflict of interest arrangement," the petition reads. Netanyahu claimed in his speech last week that after the approval of the fortification law, he will be able to engage in legal reform.
However , Legal Advisor to the Government Gali Beharev Miara clarified at the end of the week that amending the legislation does not exempt him from the conflict of interest settlement, and therefore he must avoid any initiatives to change the judicial system and the composition of the committee for the selection of judges. the criminal case and your position as prime minister," the ombudsman wrote.

Last month, the High Court of Justice ordered the Prime Minister and the Prosecutor to give reasons why they believe Netanyahu should not be taken to prison, following the ongoing trial against him, and the advancement of the legal revolution.
Supreme Court Judge Dafna Barak Erez ordered the state to respond to the movement's petition for the quality of government by the end of next month.
About two weeks later, Beharev Miara came out against the accruals law, and wrote in her opinion that the bill should be opposed, which she says prevents any judicial review of the prime minister's accruals.
According to the ombudsman's position, there is justification for determining the mechanism by which the qualifications of a prime minister will be determined. However, Beharv Miara clarified, "the details of the arrangements included in the proposal raise legal and practical difficulties, which require consideration and completion."
