Last minute postponement. "The Source" (Screenshot, Network 13)
Reshet 13 announced Wednesday evening that it would not broadcast Haim Rivlin and Abigail Kosh's investigative report on the struggle of the Gur Hasidic movement to quit it, about an hour before the program aired. This was after the Gur Hasidic community petitioned the Family Court, which issued an injunction against the broadcast of the program. Instead of "The Source", an episode of "Don't Drop the Million"
will eventually be broadcastAccording to a network announcement, the courtiers sought to prevent the identification of a minor girl connected to the affair, and the court accepted the request and ordered that her family members be blurred as well - even though these have already been exposed in the media in the past. For this reason, the program staff agreed to blur the minor's face, but refused to do the same with her parents.
The program's editorial board announced that it would appeal the decision and that they hoped to broadcast the investigation "in the coming days," as they put it. "Unfortunately, Haim Rivlin and Abigail Kosh's explosive investigation of the Gur Hasidic movement and their world war against secession will not be broadcast tonight on Mekor," Drucker wrote on Twitter. "A few hours before the broadcast, Uri Korb, the lawyer for the girls at the center of the investigation, who is also the lawyer for the Gur Hasidic movement, filed a request for an injunction against revealing the identity of the parents (which were exposed long ago and published everywhere). An hour before the broadcast, without a hearing, even though the promos have been running for several days, an injunction was issued. Tomorrow we will appeal."
