Shas vows not to take part in Knesset votes until Channel 10 chairman Sadan is fired

June 8, 2016 12:10

The Shas faction decided in a meeting Wednesday that they reject the findings of the committee that investigated Rami Sadan, the new chairman of Channel 10, who has been accused of making racist and disparaging comments about Mizrahi Jews.

Shas still believes that he made the racist statements and they do not like it that the Channel 10 board is covering up for him, the party said, formally demanding the immediate firing of Sadan.

The party said that it will not participate in any Knesset meetings or votes until Sadan is fired.

The Shas Council of Torah Sages will meet later on Wednesday to give them further instructions, the party stated.
