Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s lawyers are responding this evening (Tuesday) to the recordings of Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, which were published earlier in which he said that Netanyahu’s imprisonment was on the agenda.
“The idea that an incumbent, 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 thwart the will of the electorate and in complete violation of the Basic Law of Government.”
Prosecutors continued to attack Mandelblit, accusing him of misconduct: “The Attorney General’s interview on the matter of the trial, amounts to disrupting legal proceedings.”
MK Bezalel Smutrich responded earlier to the recordings: “If Netanyahu does not fire Mandenblit on this cheeky and unauthorized line of threats that he is deliberately spreading in an unusual media tour – he deserves Mandenblit to declare him incapacitated.”
“Whoever thus belittles the one and a half million voters who elected him and allows the ombudsman to humiliate and trample them is simply untrustworthy and cannot be prime minister.”
MK Shlomo Qara also responded to the recordings: “‘If a defendant uses governmental power, this is a difficult problem.’ If so, Mandelblit, why do you still hold the horns of the altar? That’s exactly what you’re doing. “
“Use your power to hide from the law, to cover your comrades from it, and all this only to complete the task of overthrowing the right-wing government and its leader. If the ombudsman dares to overturn the people’s decision, he will discover the power the people have in a democracy.”
Minister Miri Regev said: “The words of Spokesman Mandelblit bring the entire democracy to the siege. Anyone who imposes a siege on Netanyahu seeks to impose a siege on the millions of right-wing voters, who have elected Netanyahu three times as prime minister and will continue to elect him as their representative.”
MK Ariel Kellner responded to the recordings of the judge and executioner Mandelblit, he said, and said: “The recordings of the ombudsman are a disgrace that illustrate how determined and adhering he is in order to eliminate Netanyahu. The one who has to go to prison is the ombudsman who is in sharp conflict of interest. . And the sooner the better”.
Coalition chairman MK Miki Zohar said: “It is clear that Mandelblit’s recordings were cooked on his behalf to convey a message to the prime minister and to whitewash his scandalous decisions to file unfounded indictments that have not been filed in any democracy.”
“I feel that the moment has come when our people must decide on one of the two: Attorney General Mandelblit or Prime Minister Netanyahu.”
