TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — In a story published Nov. 25, 2022, The Associated Press quoted law professor Yaniv Roznai as saying that if Israel’s parliament gives itself the power to overturn Supreme Court rulings, this could enable the government to dismiss criminal charges against Benjamin Netanyahu. The story should have made clear that Roznai said the so-called override clause would have no direct effect on Netanyahu’s trial, but could weaken Israel’s judiciary. Many observers fear this imbalance could allow Netanyahu’s allies to clear him.
