In Harel Cohen’s view, speaking as parliamentary assistant to MK Yaakov Katz, Mike Blass has been given authority well beyond the scope of his job description.
“It is quite odd that Justice Minister [Yaakov Neeman] has empowered a man who has gotten the government in trouble and said outright lies to the court, as Bogie Yaalon put it. Instead of kicking him out, they’ve actually extended his term because the attorney slated to replace him is on maternity leave.”
“This is absurd,” Cohen said.Yori Yanover
