Netanyahu Banned from Top Law Enforcement Appointments
Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit has the authority to bind Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with a conflict-of-interest arrangement given his status as an indicted defendant, the High Court of Justice ruled Thursday.
Netanyahu has been on trial for three public corruption affairs since last May. Witnesses will be called against him starting on April 5.
There has been concern that he might try to appoint law-enforcement officials or judges, or pass legislation impacting the legal establishment, to interfere with the course of his trial.
The three justices, led by Supreme Court President Esther Hayut, agreed with all but one of the restrictions Mandelblit had proposed, be put on Netanyahu. (JPost / VFI News)
