Friedmann: My position on swap is clear, but I'll respect gov't decision

As one of three ministers who voted against the prisoner swap deal between Israel and Hizbullah, Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann said on Tuesday that he stood by his position, but would respect the government decision. "My position is known and hasn't changed," Friedmann said. "Having said that, I will respect the decision of the government, and in the next hour I will sign the necessary documents in order to release Samir Kuntar, and I will hand them to the president for the pardon."
