TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — Former top Israeli legal officials have spoken out against sweeping changes to the country’s justice system planned by the new conservative government. In a letter published Thursday, the officials lend their opposition to a growing outcry against the proposed overhaul. Seven former attorneys general and four other former senior legal officials signed a letter denouncing the changes. They said the proposals are destructive to the country’s legal system.

The proposed changes have prompted an uproar over what critics say is a major threat to the country’s democratic fundamentals.
