Outgoing Supreme Court President Aharon Barak announced on Monday that he did not seek to be appointed president of Israel. In a speech he described as a "farewell," Barak said that he intended to spend the next few years writing about human rights, Army Radio said. "I've done everything I can for the Israeli society," Barak said. "Putting pen to paper is better than public service. I'm leaving the court, and waiting for the curtain to come down so that I can leave the stage," he continued. "I'm at peace with my retirement," the president concluded.
