Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz on Friday defended State Attorney Moshe Lador for voicing his opposition to Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman's proposal to split the functions currently held by the attorney-general into two separate positions. "The state attorney is not subordinate to the justice minister. He has authority and works for the public," Mazuz said. Speaking at a conference in Neve Ilan, Mazuz added that Lador "represents the State of Israel and the Israeli public, and if he believes that the minister's proposal might harm the public's interest, it is his duty to voice this opinion," Mazuz said. Mazuz himself slammed Neeman's proposal, and warned that splitting the functions held by the attorney-general into two positions would weaken both the state prosecution and the attorney-general. Such a move would lead to a long period of "paralysis" of the legal system, he said.
