Terkel authority hearing to be delayed

The Attorney-General asked the High Court Tuesday to defer its decision about expanding the Terkel committee's authority.
After Supreme Court Justice Ya’acov Terkel threatened to resign from his position as the chairman of the independent flotilla inquiry commission if its authority would not be broadened, the state appealed to the court and is looking into different options.
This is despite the widely published Gush Shalom statement that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had already accepted Terkel's demands.
