The attorney for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s wife Sara expressed regret Wednesday over harsh remarks he made against the judge during a court session over a case involving a former domestic employee in the Netanyahu household, according to the Hebrew-language 0404 website.
Attorney Yossi Cohen told media following the appearance in court, “I appreciate the entire justice and court system and judges, and always treat them with respect.
“My criticism of the [District] Court focused on a specific legal procedure that infringed on Mrs. Netanyahu’s legal right to call witnesses.
“I had no intention of hurting the personal feelings of the judge. I apologize if things were understood otherwise.”
