Gantz extends term of acting state attorney Aisman by 4 months

Acting Justice Minister Benny Gantz extends the term of acting State Attorney Amit Aisman by another four months.

Controversial Haifa District Prosecutor Aisman was chosen in December by a selection committee as the next state prosecutor and was backed by then-justice minister Avi Nissenkorn, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held up the approval of the nomination in the cabinet.

Gantz then appointed Aisman in an interim capacity. He says today the cabinet should swiftly approve Aisman’s appointment full-time.
