Haaretz‘s Neri Livneh must pay about $50,000 for her comments in the March 2012 broadcast of the TV program Politics that have been deemed slanderous, the Jewish Press reported. Livneh had said “Itamar is a settlement of especially-aggressive people. Every two years or so, it produces a murderer,” according to Israel National News.
Haaretz is a daily local Israeli newspaper, Mondo Times reports.
According to the Jewish Press, “The law suit claimed that Livneh referred to the two plaintiffs as murderers who apparently were products of the settlement.”
Israel National News noted Livneh also has to pay costs and reported that the two sued after filing “unanswered requests for an apology.”
