Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday expressed sorrow over the passing of journalist and professor Zeev Segal.

In a statement realeased by the prime minister's media adviser, Netanyahu said: "It was with sorrow and pain that I heard about the passing of Zeev Segal, one of Israel's foremost jurists. Zeev was an exemplary figure, a journalist who struggled to advance democracy, human rights and the rule of law."

Netanyahu continued: "I saw his work at Tel Aviv University up close and the high regard in which he was held by his students and thousands of jurists around the world.  His influence as a jurist, along with his work as a legal commentator, advanced public discourse and freedom of expression in Israeli society."

Segal, a veteran legal analyst and longtime Haaretz correspondent, passed away late Tuesday night. He was 64 years old.
