The High Court on Tuesday ordered Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein to present the court with a more extensive breakdown of the reasons that led him to the decision not to prosecute MK Hanin Zoabi and Sheikh Raed Salah for their participation in the May 2010 blockade-breaking flotilla aboard the Mavi Marmara.

The order states taht the High Court "requires the filing of Supplemental Response from which the Attorney-General will be setting more details on the reasons underlying the initial decision [not to prosecute]."

The decision was made following yesterday's High Court hearing of a petition filed by MK Michael Ben-Ari (National Union), which instructed Weinstein to prosecute Zoubi and Salah.

Ben-Ari said Zoabi “took advantage of her parliamentary immunity” in order to “incite against IDF soldiers and the State of Israel” following her participation in the flotilla.
