MK Hasson: Netanyahu is Relentless


MK Yoel Hasson (Kadima), chairman of the State Control Committee, responded on Wednesday to the revelation that trips abroad of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife were sponsored by private bodies.

"A shocking picture of an unprecedented public corruption of Netanyahu and his family was revealed to us this evening," said Hasson. "Using hollow slogans and high words, Netanyahu begged the entire world to finance his travel for pleasure purposes in contrast to the law and ethics."

Hasson added that Netanyahu "is a relentless person who does not distinguish between good and evil and between right and wrong. I intend to turn to the state comptroller and ask him to immediately begin an investigation of the systematic and severe transgressions of Netanyahu."
