Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, currently
visiting in ,
telephoned Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch on Wednesday to express his
support in her after a man threw his shoes at the judge.
Beinisch was lightly injured in the incident. A 52-year-old
resident, who threw his shoes at her, was detained by the court’s
security guards and was being questioned by police.
“I’m mortified,” Netanyahu told Beinisch.
“Attacks must not be carried out against the
court, and hurting the Supreme Court president is unthinkable. I support you and the
entire legal system,” the prime minister said.
