Yair Netanyahu, son of the premier, requires a million dollars ($ 272,000) from Roy Rosen, the driver who secretly filmed while riding with his friends at the club.
According to a lawsuit filed by attorney Amit Hadad, who represents Netanyahu at the tribunal before a court in Tel Aviv, the video is a violation of privacy and even forbidden "eavesdropping", since the driver was not a party to the conversation.
In the lawsuit, Netanyahu claimed that the video damaged not only privacy but also "the interest of the entire Israeli public." This is because of what he defined as "the loss of trust in the envelope of services provided by the state of Israel for those who demand these services on the basis of their function".
It should be noted that according to Israeli law, a person can record a conversation with a party, even without the consent of other parties in that conversation.
However, recording a conversation on which person is not a party constitutes a criminal offense of "tapping" and creates a basis for a civil lawsuit.
The video was broadcast in January Channel 2.
In March, Modi & # 39; in Ezrahi, who used the driver, filed a lawsuit against him for a quarter of a million shekels, and now the driver will have to fight with another claim.
