Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s associates are attacking the spokesman’s response to the High Court regarding the permits committee, in which he argued that the funds received by the prime minister’s wife, Sarah Netanyahu, for legal protection should be examined – for fear that this is considered an indirect gift.
“The Attorney General’s response to the High Court is further proof of the persecution and sewing of cases against Prime Minister Netanyahu and his wife,” those close to him said. “The Attorney General’s attempt to reverse the permit committee’s decision on unfounded grounds reveals his true and undisguised intention – to act to replace the Prime Minister.”
They added: “Throughout the legal proceedings in the case of the prime minister and his wife, Mandelblit’s decisions are full of contradictions. Whenever he feared that his previous decision would harm his chances of conviction in the case, he reversed his decision 180 degrees.”
As an example, insiders said that “in 2018, Mandelblit ruled that the Gifts Act did not apply to Spencer’s support for legal defense funding – and now that he feels this decision will hurt his ability to convict – he reverses it.”
“Mandelblit was also the man who sent the prime minister to the Permits Committee to approve the financing of his legal expenses – only to deny him the funding when the committee confirmed that the prime minister could accept it.
“The adviser prevented the prime minister from funding his legal defense, he is trying to circumvent the decision of 11 High Court justices and the Basic Law of the government through a ‘conflict of interest document’ that recommends depriving the prime minister of basic powers and ‘silencing’ him, and now he has no authority to reverse The decision of the Permits Committee regarding the legal protection of his wife. “
Those close to him believe that: “The ombudsman has lost all control. He has decided to overthrow Prime Minister Netanyahu at all costs and is speeding towards him like an uncontrollable train that has lost its brakes.”
