Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit is threatening to release Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu following his criminal trial, according to an interview with Israel Yoskowitz, which will be published in Mishpacha’s holiday magazine, although he has previously denied it.
“There is another matter … the other matter, it is normative, that is, a lack in the absence of all normative functioning,” Mandblit said in an interview, headlines of which were quoted in News 12. “Is, as I make the distinction and I say – there is a defendant Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu and there is the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu, it is not the same thing.
“If you mix things up and use your governing power as prime minister, to influence you criminally, this is starting to be a difficult problem. How do you deal with that problem? So if it really is impossible to deal with, we may well be rolling into imprisonment.”
Mandelblit was asked, “How will you know when it is …?”, And replied: “Again, it’s not math and I do not, I do not, I do not hurry and I try to be very considerate and very calm and every time I count to a thousand and not to ten, I Can not afford … I do not act like social networks … but yes I say, that this is exactly what the conflict of interest arrangement is for and no, he does me no favors.I do not accept that he comes and says: ‘I will take it upon myself voluntarily Limitations’, no. You have to take restrictions, that’s also what the Supreme Court said in its ruling. “For example, in an appointment in the law enforcement system, he is not engaged in amending legislation specific to his personal interest, when he uses his governmental power, it must not be allowed.”
Mandelblit also hints that he will not agree to a plea deal in Netanyahu’s case: “I asked for the trial to take place from day to day, I said as soon as possible that the people of Israel must make a quick decision on this matter. It should be done day by day, finish it as soon as possible here or there and should be decided by arguments, especially by the way, I tell you this another statement in parentheses, especially against the background of the claims he makes. Sewing bags and there is nothing and there was nothing because there is nothing. “And all these statements, let’s see … the court will decide and see what the decision will be. And I respect every decision, in the end there is a court, a decision rule – a court, there is no problem.”
The spokesman dismissed the allegations that this was a political persecution of Prime Minister Netanyahu: “I did not file an indictment, I said that too. I did not file an indictment against God forbid, against the Likud party or any political party, I did not file against the right, Absolutely not … not really in these places.You asked for personal acts, analyze the indictment and see it, not only in case 1,000, no, in all cases, it is personal acts of Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu, he is personally charged with criminal offenses.
“Unfortunately, my heart really hurts and I do not just say it. My heart hurts really every day I wake up and my heart hurts. I came to this place, not good, too bad. On the other hand it is my duty to the people of Israel … I will not give up Corruption for such things, in my eyes it is alleged personal corruption, ostensibly. He has the presumption of innocence, he may prove his innocence, he will have the opportunity in court, I do not know. At the moment the evidence before me, there is a reasonable chance of conviction in my opinion … “Two and a half articles in Walla and we will not be scared of ‘some cigarettes’, yes? This is not the story, this is not the case, I would not file an indictment in such situations.”
Mandelblit added: “A lot of things surprised me, what is it that Benjamin Netanyahu sat with Noni Mozes for years and talked between them, I almost fell off the chair when I saw it, it’s not something that did not surprise me.”
On behalf of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s attorneys, it was stated: “The idea that an official, no matter how senior, who finds himself in a conflict of interest, will decide on the incarceration of an incumbent prime minister, is anti-democratic and an attempt to frustrate the electorate.” The trial is set to disrupt legal proceedings. “
