In an article in the Israeli newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth, Pinhas Rubin addresses the need for some changes in the Israeli justice system.

 

One major change the Chairman of Gornitzky & Co. is looking to see is a solution to the serious lack of judges, which, in his opinion, has plagued the country for decades already. If the budget for the system is not increased, Mr. Rubin fears that the Israeli judiciary system will suffer the loss of some of its power, due to the overloading burden on the limited number of judges, "The country is committing a grievous sin towards the public in not setting aside the necessary resources for the [justice] system. Tell-tale signs of this misdoing can already be seen, and in my opinion, it will only get worse."
