Claim Netanyahu Cases Compromised Rejected by A-G Office

YERUSHALAYIM -

The latest legal tactic tried by Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s lawyers to fend off the investigations against him have yielded no results.

Vice Attorney General Dina Zilber rejected on Sunday a claim submitted by Netanyahu lawyer Yossi Cohen that police investigations were compromised due to the involvement of former head of Lahav 433 Roni Ritman.

Ritman was dismissed from the force due to charges of personal misconduct.

In a letter, Zilber said that the argument that Ritman’s involvement rendered the investigations biased were unacceptable.
