Petitioner calls for recusal law to be delayed ‘as long as Netanyahu in conflict of interest’

Petitioner Eliad Shraga calls for the High Court to delay implementation of the recusal law “as long as [Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu] is in a conflict of interest,” seeming to suggest the legislation should not take effect until the conclusion of the premier’s corruption trial.

Justice Alex Stein warns such a move could result in a “legal fog” while Justice Yael Wilner also pushes back, questioning whether there should be a law that applies only to a specific individual.

“Is there a precedent for this?” she asks.
