JERUSALEM (JTA) -- The establishment of panels of inquiry to look into the funding and activities of left-leaning non-governmental organizations could violate basic human rights, Israel's attorney general said.

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein made the statement Sunday in a brief filed with Israel's Supreme Court, in response to a petition asking the court to prevent the establishment of such Knesset inquiry panels.

The Knesset is set to vote next week on a bill that would establish two panels to look into the funding sources and activities of left-wing organizations.
