The head of Labor Avi Gabbay warned the Knesset on Monday that “damaging democracy will cause an immense damage for the economy,” a press release on behalf of his party reported.

Gabay warned that should a special law be passed by Knesset that will grant serving Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu immunity from the law “the tycoons that support him and are aided by him” will follow.

Gabay said that should Israel pass such a legislation it risks a massive brain-drain as “the most important people to our economy” will leave the country.
