Justice minister taps acting state attorney to be the next top prosecutor

Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar announces that he is appointing acting state attorney Amit Aisman to the role of Israel’s top prosecutor on a permanent basis.

Aisman was approved as acting state attorney in January, after then-prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu held up his nomination. A selection committee had tapped Aisman for the post, which has been vacant since Shai Nitzan ended his term in December 2019.
