Labor MK: Saving Ministry Could Pervert Justice


Saving the Foreign Ministry position for former Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on condition that his trial ends without a conviction could lead to a perversion of justice, MK Meirav Michaeli of the Labor party argued Sunday.

“People who are to testify against the man who was their minister, who hear he could return – that puts them in an impossible situation,” she argued. While Lieberman could not fire workers who testified against them, as they are state employees and not his personal staff “he could certainly make trouble for them, [could] make things very difficult,” she said.
