Report: Police Say Charge Former Senior Kadima Staffers

The police are recommending that four former senior staffers of the Kadima party, including former director-general Moshe Shachori and former treasurer Yitzchak Hadad, be tried on charges of financial crimes involving party funds, according to a Friday report by the Yisrael Hayom daily. The charges are the result of an investigation into the running of the party between 2008 and 2011, when Tzipi Livni headed the party. The Justice Minister's Office stressed that Livni asked the police to investigate the suspicions at the time. The party said that when Shaul Mofaz replaced her, he instructed the relevant parties in Kadima to cooperate with police.

The police are recommending that Shachori be charged with falsifying corporate documents, conspiracy, aggravated receiving something through fraudulent means, violation of privacy and obstruction of justice. Shachori said he was only summoned for questioning about the party's data base, he cooperated fully and would be proven not to have any connection to the case.
