The recordings came from an interview given by Mandelblit to the holiday magazine “Mishpacha” newspaper to journalist Israel Yoskowitz, which is expected to be published tomorrow.

“There is another matter … the other matter, it is normative, that is, a lack in the absence of the whole functional normative,” Mandelblit said in the recordings. “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 governmental power as prime minister, to criminally influence you, here begins to be a difficult problem. How do you deal with this problem? So if it really is impossible to deal with it, it could be that we will roll into fortune. “
How will you know when it will be?
“Again, it’s not math and I’m not, I’m not, I’m not in a 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 behave like social networks … but Yes I say, thatThis is exactly what the conflict of interest arrangement is for and no, it does me no favors. I do not accept that he comes and says, “I will voluntarily take on limitations,” no. You must take restrictions, that’s also what the Supreme Court said in its ruling. These limitations you will take upon yourself to make a distinction, and I am neither innocent nor naive and it is clear to me that it will not be one hundred percent, but do need the statement that he is not engaged for example in appointing the law enforcement system, is not engaged in amending legislation specific to his personal interest. “It must not be allowed.”
Mandelblit even hinted that he would 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. You can not really pull it off for 5 years as you say, it is very bad if it is 5 Years. Should do it from day to day, finish it as soon as possible here or here and should decide the claims, especially by the way, I tell you this another statement in parentheses, especially against the background of the claims he claims. Sewing bags and there is nothing and there was nothing because there is no “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.”
In conclusion, the ombudsman refuted the allegations that this was a political persecution of Netanyahu: “I did not file an indictment, I said that as well. I did not file an indictment against God forbid, against the Likud party or any political party, I did not file against the right, not really … not at all 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’m not just saying that. “My heart aches really every day I wake up and my heart aches,” he said.
“I came to this place, not good, too bad. On the other hand This is my duty to the people of Israel … I will not give up corruption on such things, “He added.” To me, this is alleged personal corruption, allegedly. 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... We will not be scared of the ‘two and a half articles in Walla’ and we will not be scared of the ‘some cigarettes’, yes? This is not the story, this is not the case, I would not have indicted in such situations. ”
“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,” he noted.
