'EU concerned over Likud proposals to weaken Israel's judiciary'

The European Union has communicated to Israeli official its concern over proposed changes to laws governing the standing of the judiciary, Channel 2 reported on Friday.
European officials said they were watching Israeli coalition talks with apprehension, particularly in light of demands made by Likud politicians to enact reforms that would grant the legislature greater power in shaping the character of the Supreme Court.
The Europeans are concerned that any law curbing the power of Israel’s judiciary could undermine the Jewish state’s democratic character, thus imperiling certain initiatives with Brussels.
