Tonight (Thursday), Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu replied to the High Court of Justice regarding the conflict of interest settlement prepared for him by Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, regarding issues related to the law enforcement system, and wrote: “Mandelblit has no authority to determine a conflict of interest settlement. .
Netanyahu also wrote: “There is no impediment to the Prime Minister leading a split in the position of attorney general following the position of head of the general prosecution. “This is a matter of principle that has nothing to do with the criminal proceedings against the prime minister. There is no logic and no reason to prevent the prime minister and the chairman of the Likud movement from engaging in the issue. Such a violation will also infringe on basic democratic rights.”
