Danny Rozen, the life partner of former Haifa Police chief Ahuva Tomer, told Israel Radio on Thursday that he would sue Interior Minister Eli Yishai.
"Eli Yishai has to pay" for the Carmel fire, Rozen said. "I will do whatever he can so he pays out of his own pocket."
At Wednesday's state cermony to honor the 44 victims of the Carmel fire, Rozen demanded that Yishai leave the ceremony, saying "this man has no shame' either he leaves or I leave." Rozen's life partner died in Haifa's Rambam Medical Center, days after suffering burns over her entire body while attempting to rescue victims trapped in a burning Prisons Service bus.
