The Movement for Quality Government petitioned the High Court of Justice on Friday to force the Winograd Committee to include personal recommendations against those responsible for failures during the Second Lebanon War last summer. High Court Judge Esther Hayut gave the committee a period of ten days to formulate a response to the movement's petition, Israel Radio reported Saturday evening. The petition also asked that the publication of the committee's final report be delayed until the legal proceedings for the petition were finished. The report is due to be published by the end of the year. On Thursday, attorney Yosef Benkel announced that Military Defender Col. Orna David would petition the High Court next week against the committee's decision to publish the final report without issuing letters of caution to those who stand to be hurt by it. Benkel charged that the committee had gone back on its promise to the High Court. The military defender and former MK Avraham Poraz have already petitioned the High Court once before on the same matter.
