Israeli Judge, Prosecutor Scandal Leads to Judicial Inquiry

1

The president of Israel’s Supreme Court announced the establishment of an official inquiry into the relationship between judges and law-enforcement officials, following the collusion of a judge with a state prosecutor in a case involving Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The announcement was made after Tel Aviv Magistrate Court Judge Ronit Poznansky-Katz was found to have coordinated her remand rulings with a state prosecutor for suspects implicated in a corruption case involving Netanyahu and the Israeli telecom giant Bezeq.

Last week, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked initiated disciplinary proceedings against Poznansky-Katz, who will not face criminal proceedings at this time.

Judge Eliezer Rivlin, the ombudsman handling complaints against judges, found that a dialogue of text messages over several months between Poznansky-Katz and Israel Securities Authority attorney Eran Shacham-Shavit was “highly inappropriate.”
