Incoming justice minister says there is room ‘to fix’ the legal system

New Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar says he hopes to fix Israel’s legal system — but not to destroy it.

“There is room to fix the legal system, which hasn’t had any changes for many years,” Sa’ar says during an official handover ceremony at the Justice Ministry. “I came to fix, not to destroy.”

Sa’ar, the leader of New Hope, adds that Israel’s legal system “is in desperate need of responsible changes today that will be made in a nonpartisan manner.”
