Steinitz: Doctors must respect rule of law

Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz called on medical residents to respect the rule of law and follow court decisions, he said at the Calcalist conference on Thursday.
"I urge the doctors to respect the law, the rule of law and the court rulings, because otherwise there will be anarchy," he said, emphasizing that the rule of law applies to all Israeli citizens.
The Treasury filed an urgent plea to the Labor Court in Jerusalem for contempt-of-court orders against residents that have resigned in a labor dispute.
A panel of three justices was scheduled to convene at the High Court Thursday morning, to discuss the medical residents' petition to be allowed to resign legally.
