Kadima Chairwoman Tzipi Livni gave her opinion on the decision by Attorney- General Yehuda Weinstein to indict Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman that he planned to file an indictment against him.

“Law enforcement must be carried out without any distinctions between citizens, between rich and poor, between citizens and public figures, and without embarrassment," she said during a Passover toast sponsored by her party. "Tonight especially, I reiterate the complete faith I have in the law enforcement system and the courts,” she continued.

“That faith is the soul of democracy, and must not change in accordance to the individual, the case or any political considerations. The message today is especially important because of the public’s loss of faith in politics, beginning with the loss of norms and continuing through to criminal offenses,” Livni continued. She added that the “time has come for the wheels of justice not to turn quite so slowly and to act quickly in order to create certainty in cases concerning public officials, certainty that is so important to restore public faith in politics.”
