Following Haim Ramon's sentencing Thursday morning to 120 hours community service and the court ruling that his conviction would not carry with it moral turpitude, head of the National Religious Party (NRP) Zevulun Orlev said that appointing anyone convicted of an indecent act as a minister is an indecent act within itself. "If Olmert appoints Ramon as minister, it will constitute moral turpitude and yet another sign of the corrupt and immoral government," Orlev said. MK Zvi Hendel (National Union) said that if Ramon returns to political life it would be "true moral turpitude on behalf of the legal system which has surrendered to the vulgar and hypocritical campaign that the left has held [for Ramon]."
