AG’s office: Court needs to be very worried when the government says ‘trust us’

A representative of  Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara tells the High Court that it needs to be very concerned by the government’s decision to limit the overview of the court.

Gali Baharav-Miara is not representing the government, having told it to get private representation because she could not defend the reasonableness law.

“We saw an amazing example where the Knesset asked if the court has authority, and then said ‘we will decide,'” lawyer Aner Helman says, presenting the AG’s position.

“If there is one thing that should frighten all of us, it’s when they come and tell us ‘trust us, we won’t harm the Basic Laws,'” Helman says. “That means we all need to be very, very careful.”
