The Prime Minister’s Attorneys are attacking Attorney General Dr. Avichai Mandelblit following the interview with a family newspaper in which he stated that the possibility of Netanyahu being imprisoned was not ruled out.
“The idea that an official, senior as he may be, who finds himself in a conflict of interest, will decide on the incarceration of an incumbent prime minister is anti-democratic, an attempt to frustrate the will of the electorate and in complete violation of the Basic Law of Government,” they noted.
Netanyahu’s lawyers further claimed that the interview itself constituted a criminal offense.
In an interview whose recordings were published tonight on News 12, Mandelblit explained: “There is another matter … the other matter, it is normative, that is, a lack of restraint of the whole functional norm. Does, as I make the distinction and I say – there is a defendant Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu and there “Israel Benjamin Netanyahu, it is not the same thing.”
He said, “If you mix things up and use your governing power as prime minister to influence you criminally, there’s starting to be a difficult problem. How do you deal with that problem? So if you really can’t deal with it, we may be rolling into incarceration.”
