"There is a continuing campaign conducted over years aimed at meddling with the public's trust in the judicial system - and we shall pay a high price for it," said Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch on Wednesday. In a conversation with reporters Beinisch lamented the current public image of the Supreme Court and also voiced her objection to making changes in the Judges Election Committee, a move initiated by newly-appointed Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann. "There is a new fashion [in Israel]. Every candidate for an appointment as a judge becomes a suspect. This erodes the attractiveness of this job," Beinisch said On the Judges Election Committee initiative, Beinisch said it was "not serious." "I suggest we check whether the university professors will agree to have their appointments weighed by doctoral students," she added.
