Also speaking at the Bar Association’s conference, former justice minister Gideon Sa’ar says the lengthy trial of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is “unjust for the entire people of Israel and the entire country.”
“A prime minister’s case should be conducted at a different pace,” he says.
“I voiced my opinion a few months ago and I say it again — I support trying to end the saga of the Netanyahu trial with a plea deal. I believe this is in the public interest.
“I say this disconnected from political considerations. It is unreasonable that after three years [of an ongoing trial] we are still only at the stage of the prosecution’s case.”
