Court rulings to be broadcast live in cases of public interest, under new pilot

Israel’s court system will start a pilot program in the coming year, under which rulings in cases that are of public interest in magistrate and district courts will be broadcast live.

Supreme Court President Esther Hayut announces the decision after conferring with court presidents throughout the country. The move is intended to increase transparency and follows a pilot that has seen some court sessions at the Supreme Court broadcast live.
