MK Michael Ben Ari (National Union) has proposed a bill by which only a justice who has served in the IDF or has done national service will be eligible for appointment to the Supreme Court.  According to the bill, a justice already serving in the Supreme Court, such as Salim Jubran, will not be able to serve as president of the court or his deputy.

High Court of Justice Judge Salim Jubran stated that the police deliberately avoided investigating the leaks from the investigation of Former President Moshe Katsav and is still declining to do so. Jubran quoted Yoav Segalovich, Head of the Police Investigations Unit, who led the Katsav investigation, as saying that he decided to focus on the main allegations rather than pursue side investigations to find the leaks. He attested that just like he refrained from investigating the seemingly problematic conduct of the defense during the affair, so did he refrain from investigating the leaks.

The Supreme Court has decided that the separation between men and women on buses will become a permanent arrangement. A three-judge panel today (Thursday) adopted the arrangement initiated by the Ministry of Transportation which permits separation between men and women on Mehadrin lines – the bus routes which primarily serve the ultra-orthodox (haredi) population. Under this arrangement, the separation will be consensual, and no force or violence will be applied to women passengers. The arrangement further states that the Ministry of Transportation will enforce the arrangement with an inspection system. The decision maintains the current condition, where women do not sit in the front part of the bus on Mehadrin lines. (Hebrew)
