AG says legal system victim of misinformation and ‘blood libels’

Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit warns of attempts by government officials to discredit law enforcement, likening some of the attacks on the justice system to a “blood libel.”

The legal system “encounters attempts to harm the law enforcement system, while spreading false information that sometimes is tantamount to a blood libel,” says Mandelblit.

According to Hebrew media reports, he specifically refers to ministers’ attempts to blame him for a lack of coronavirus testing at the airport over legal reasons, as well as Public Security Minister Amir Ohana’s initial refusal to vaccinate prisoners.
