Gantz bids farewell to Justice Ministry staff, vows ‘full backing’

Benny Gantz bids farewell to the Justice Ministry employees after his spell as acting minister ended today and Israel was left for the first time without a justice minister.

Gantz has accused Prime Minister Netanyahu of trying to harm the justice system, and has slammed his refusal to appoint a new full-time minister.

“Even without a justice minister, you will have full backing to continue acting fearlessly and impartially,” he adds. “I will put up an iron wall against any attempt to hinder your work.”
