The state prosecutor on Sunday rejected a petition by a number of Knesset members and prominent religious leaders to retroactively acquit Margalit Har-Shefi, the girlfriend of Yigal Amir - the man who murdered Yitzhak Rabin.

The Justice Ministry explained that the petition was identical to one that was submitted in 2008 to Attorney General Meni Mazuz, who did not find a basis to use the authority that allows to initiate a retrial."After careful consideration of the current petition, no new reason was found that justifies a renewed examination of the Attorney General's stance.
