Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar says he intends to push for the passage of new, sweeping legislation on the rights of Israeli citizens in the legal system. The legislation is intended to have the status of a Basic Law, the closest thing Israel has to a constitution.

Sa’ar says he has instructed Deputy Attorney General Amit Marari to begin drafting the law in consultation with Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit.
