Former Supreme Court President Meir Shamgar, who died over the weekend at the age of 94, was laid to rest on Tuesday. Shamgar, who also served as attorney general and the IDF military advocate general, was eulogized as a pioneer, who shaped the legal institutions in Israel toward greater authority and independence, while striving to protect rights of individuals and the rule of law.

KAN's Naomi Segal asked Dr Amir Fuchs, a researcher and head of the Defending Democratic Values Program at the Israel Democracy Institute, what, in his view, was Shamgar's impact and legacy.
