After the President of the Supreme Court, Esther Hayut, prevented right-wing organizations from participating in the discussion about the reduction of the Clause of Reasonability on the status of 'A Friend of the Court', activists from the "If You Will" group arrived at her home this morning with duct tape over their mouths as a sign of protest against Hayut's silencing.
The activists reminded the president of her many conflicts of interest. Additionally, there was confusion about how the Association for Civil Rights and the "Adam, Teva VaDin" Human Rights Organization were approved as 'Friends of the Court'. However, for some reason, there was no room for any right-wing organization to join the discussion.
"It's an unfathomable silencing," said Matan Jerafi, head of the Mission Department at the "If You Will" movement. "By her will, the president of the Supreme Court opens the gates of the court to protest organizations and left-wing organizations. By her will, she locks the gates of the court to right-wing organizations and seals the mouths of millions of citizens. We can no longer tolerate the dictatorship of the High Court!"
