On Tuesday, Homeland Security Minister Amir Ohana attacked Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, claiming that he was not doing enough about the threats to Prime Minister Netanyahu and his family. “You do not take seriously my appeal regarding the growing threats to the lives of the prime minister and his family,” Ohana wrote. “Your decision to file an indictment against Netanyahu – this is not a fight for life or death.”
Ohana opened by saying that “from your smug letter, it appears that you do not take my appeal regarding the growing threats to the life of the prime minister and his family seriously. “Your intervention to prevent him from being able to obtain financing for the legal expenses that he imposed on him – when you are in a conflict of interest is built into the fact that you are the accuser and the prosecutor seeking to have him convicted.”
Ohana further claimed that “we are dealing with the law of souls, in the most literal sense: in the already tumultuous public arena, there are now explicit calls for the assassination of the prime minister and his family. These are blatant and explicit calls.”
The Minister of Internal Security gave examples of incitement against Netanyahu. “According to the publications this week, a man named ‘Eitan Ido’, one of the participants in the demonstrations against the Prime Minister, announced in the WhatsApp group that ‘… each of the demonstrators is ready to be the victim for the state and to be Higal Amir and the executor of the elimination of Bibi.’ Another person named ‘Menashe Ofer’ wrote: “Walla is right, Bibi should be brought down as they were taken down by Rabin …” “.
“In your letter you do not specify at all what will be done in the cases I mentioned,” Ohana wrote. “Has an investigation been opened? Have detainees been arrested? What is the legal source of the authority you have given yourself to decide when the police will open an investigation into an offense of incitement to violence? Can you refer to the sections of the law?”
In conclusion, Ohana stressed: “As far as measures are taken, investigations are opened, detainees are arrested – this must be published for the sake of seeing and seeing. The wild incitement gives the impression that ‘there is no law and no justice.’ We are not fighting for life or death. ”
Meanwhile, after the investigation of a 46-year-old man, a resident of Petah Tikva in the cyber unit in Lahav 433, was completed, an indictment was filed against him for threatening Attorney General Mandelblit. The investigation revealed that the suspect arrived near the counselor’s house a few weeks ago, threatening to harm him again.
