United Torah Judaism lawmakers are quizzed by Rivlin on their views of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s corruption trial.
“We don’t trust law enforcement,” interjects UTJ leader Moshe Gafni.
UTJ MK Meir Porush underlines that Netanyahu can legally remain prime minister until a conviction in the trial, and after all appeals are exhausted. Therefore the ultra-Orthodox party has no problem recommending he remain in office, says Porush.
Gafni rails against the court system, claiming they “never ruled in favor of Judaism,” before the president cuts him off.
