Herzog: Knesset legal advisor's opinion – slippery slope

Following the Knesset Legal Advisor Attorney Eyal Yinon's opinion on Knesset members' immunity, MK Isaac Herzog (Labor) wrote him: "Your opinion raises doubts regarding crucial questions regarding  the exposure of information not directly related to state security but seemingly protected as 'classified information.'

 

Herzog added: "Your opinion could be interpreted in a way which will limit MKs' essential immunity, a dangerous slippery slope." Yinon said on Monday: " The Knesset isn't a prosecution-free zone" and added that MKs are prohibited from exposing material under a gag order. (Moran Azulay)
