MK Dov Henin (Hadash) on Monday spoke up against the trial of social justice movement leader Daphni Leef, due to take place later today, saying the country should "apologize" to Leef.

In a statement, Henin said: "I am ashamed to be a Member of Knesset. Instead of apologizing for the brutal attack of the inspectors and police officers on Daphni, we are accusing her of disturbing them."

He added that all the Knesset factions needed to do was to stand beside her.
