Download PDF for this date

The re-appointment of Yaacov Shimshon Shapiro as Minister of Justice was unanimously approved yesterday by the Cabinet. Shapiro’s return to the Government from which he resigned two months ago, will come before the Knesset for approval later this week. It is expected to encounter opposition from the Herut and other opposition factions. Premier Golda Meir plans to address a special vacation session of the Knesset tomorrow to explain her reasons for wanting Shapiro back.
