Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman on Wednesday harshly criticized an attack on Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch, who was lightly hurt when a 52-year-old resident hurled his shoes at her during a court hearing.

“This grave incident must not be tolerated,” Neeman said.

“This attack on the president [of the court] hurts not only the Supreme Court President, but the justice system as a whole. A justice system is a major part of a democratic regime in any civilized state,” he said in a statement.
