PM orders freezing of 'Bar Association Bill'

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu froze the "Bar Association Bill," telling Justice Minister Ya'akov Neeman to "stop the progress of this law."
According to Channel 10 news, Netanyahu understood that the bill in its present form, even if it passed a final reading in the Knesset, would not stand in the High Court of Justice.
Earlier Wednesday, Kadima delayed the vote on the controversial “Bar Association Bill” despite Netanyahu's attempt to ensure the second and third (final) readings of the legislation would take place on Monday.
