Daily Briefing June 26: Reasonably or not, here comes the renewed judicial overhaul

ToI editor David Horovitz on the restart of frozen legislation; Zman Yisrael editor Biranit Goren on police staffing problems; and both discuss Case 1000’s Hollywood treatment

Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday.

Times of Israel editor David Horovitz and Zman Yisrael editor Biranit Goren join host Amanda Borschel-Dan in today’s episode.

Three months after it was frozen, the judicial overhaul was officially restarted yesterday with deliberations in the Knesset’s Constitution, Law and Justice Committee. Why do critics call it a “pathway to corruption”?

Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan testified yesterday in the prime minister’s ongoing corruption trial, Case 1000. What did we hear?

Yesterday, Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai said he would not seek a fourth year in his position. But Goren explains how this isn’t the only power vacuum we’re set to see in the police force.

Discussed articles include:

PM said ready to ‘go all the way’ with reasonableness bill to limit judicial review

Knesset restarts judicial overhaul with bill to broadly outlaw ‘reasonableness’ test

In testimony, Milchan confirms conveyor belt of cigars, champagne to Netanyahus

Police chief says he won’t seek 4th year in office ‘under these conditions’
