“You cannot have a democracy without privacy; this is a basic condition,” attorney Gil Gan-Mor told The Media Line. According to Gan-Mor, the unit director of Civil and Social Rights, Human Rights in the Digital Age Project at the ACRI, this bill is “dangerously extreme” and is leading Israel to become a “surveillance society.”

“It’s a historic day,” said Noa Sattath, head of ACRI, one of the groups that challenged the law. “This is the first opportunity to more closely understand the court’s response to the overhaul. The hearing is important in its own terms. But its importance is heightened because [the law] is the first step in a larger plan.”

This government has already expressed a desire to fire officials like the attorney general and replace them with yes-men that will do whatever the government wants. And the reasonability bill presumably takes away our power to challenge that,” said Noa Sattath, Executive Director of ACRI.

“We are already in a constitutional crisis: government ministers have made no secret of their intentions to remove gatekeepers such as the attorney general and instead nominate people who will protect them,” said Noa Sattath, the Executive Director of ACRI.

“It’s one of the longest hearings I’ve ever been in,” says Gil Gan-Mor, director of the Civil Rights Unit at ACRI, speaking to The Media Line during a session break. Gan-Mor adds that 38 human rights organizations have gathered, seeking to have the court hear their claim that “this law will lead to a serious violation of human rights.”
