The court session was postponed to September 19.
The representative of “Sokhnut” at the trial, he asked to appoint a “two-month conciliation procedure”, but the Ministry of Justice opposed it, and the court refused to appoint such a procedure, Kommersant writes. However, he granted the second motion of the Jewish Agency to postpone the meeting “in order to form a position on new written evidence and try to eliminate the identified violations.”
