The Culture Ministry responded on Monday evening to the Police Department’s investigation into Arab-Israeli priest Gabriel Naddaf, who is meant to light a torch at the Independence Day ceremony.

“Minister Regev trusts the law enforcement authorities to conduct a full investigation into the matter involving Father Gabriel Naddaf… Every person has should be considered innocent until proven otherwise, and so the minister will not intervene in the public committee’s decision until the law enforcement authorities indicate to her that she should act otherwise,” the Culture Ministry announced
