Meretz-Yahad MK Zahava Gal-On petitioned the High Court of Justice on Tuesday, asking it to order the government-appointed Winograd Committee of Examination into the second Lebanon war to allow the public to attend its hearings. Until now, the hearings have been conducted behind closed doors. Gal-On also demanded that the committee publish the minutes of the hearings by the end of the day on which they are held. Gal-On wrote that the public was entitled to receive comprehensive and detailed information about the mistakes and failures that occurred during the fighting.
