Ben Gvir – “I will introduce a law to split the position of legal adviser to the government”

Itamar Ben Gvir calls for MK Yitzhak Kreuzer's bill to split the position of legal advisor to the government to be submitted to the Ministerial Committee for Legislative Affairs. The law will state that the legal advisor is no longer responsible for the prosecution in the State of Israel and this authority will be granted exclusively to the head of the prosecution, the state attorney. According to Minister Ben Gabir, the Minister of Justice, Yariv Levin opposes submitting the bill to the Ministerial Committee for Legislative Affairs.

Minister Ben Gvir: “The ombudsman's defense of Yair Golan shows that the legal advice institution is biased, in particular the current ombudsman. It's unimaginable, a person who doesn't even have immunity, threatens sedition and calls and refuses the ombudsman to sit on her feet without doing anything. Illusory in any way.'

The explanatory notes to the law state that “the main purpose of this law is to ensure the absolute independence of the criminal prosecution as a quasi-judicial institution free from extraneous institutional considerations.” In doing so, this law seeks to ensure maximum public confidence in the criminal prosecution institution. Since the institution of the legal adviser to the government is entrusted, by its very function, with interests additional to those of criminal prosecution, this law seeks to separate the institution of legal advice to the government from the institution of the general prosecution.'

It should be noted that this bill and similar ones were placed on the Knesset's table in each of the previous revenues in the last decade.
