Israeli attorney-general says Netanyahu's judicial overhaul 'illegal'

Israel's Attorney-General Gali Baharav-Miara on Friday said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s involvement in judiciary overhaul is illegal.

According to the Israeli public broadcaster KAN, Baharav-Miara's letter to Netanyahu informed him that his Thursday speech on his planned changes within the judiciary was illegal and "tainted by a conflict of interest."

She wrote to Netanyahu, saying: "As a prime minister accused of crimes, you must refrain from taking actions that give rise to a reasonable fear of the existence of a conflict of interest between your personal interests relating to the criminal proceedings and your role as prime minister."

The attorney-general also notified Netanyahu that he must not involve in the formation of the committee for selecting judges for the Supreme Court.
