Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tells the High Court of Justice that he does not accept the position of Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara that his involvement in judicial reform is a conflict of interest due to his ongoing corruption trial.

In a filing to the court, Netanyahu requests two weeks to full respond to the letter that the attorney general sent him earlier today.

He says that he views the attorney general’s position on the matter as “unacceptable.”
