PM to Beinisch Steinitz




Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday night told Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch that he supported the legal system and the Supreme Court, stressing that Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz's remarks against the court's rulings reflected Steinitz's personal opinion alone. On Monday, Steinitz rebuked the Supreme Court for "not taking budgetary factors into consideration in its rulings" and claimed that several of its rulings had caused the state to suffer major economic losses. Later on Wednesday night, Steinitz himself called Beiniesh and they agreed to meet in order to iron out the difficulties.
