Moscow, March 12 – The Israeli government accuses the United States of funding protests against judicial reform, reports The Times of Israel.
This protest is funded and organized with millions of dollars. There is an organized center from which all the demonstrators are distributed in an orderly manner. Who finances transportation, flags and stages? It is clear to us.” The post quotes a senior government official.
The media reported that about half a million demonstrators took part in the rallies in Israel
Another member of the delegation accompanying Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed that the official was speaking of the United States.
Israelis oppose the judicial reform of the Netanyahu government for the tenth week in a row. The proposed bill would limit the Supreme Court’s influence over the process of adopting basic laws, allow parliamentarians to challenge Supreme Court decisions, and give the government control over the procedure for appointing judges.
Earlier, Israeli President Isaac Herzog, in a televised address to the population, said that the country was on the verge of no return, and that the Netanyahu government needed to abandon legal reform. In February, the president had already come out with an emergency televised address to his compatriots, during which he proposed a five-point plan to change the draft reform of the legal system.
