Call for A-G to Resign after Lieberman Verdict
For 17 years, the State Attorney's Office has conducted investigations against Avigdor Lieberman, but none of them produced enough solid evidence of wrongdoing to justify a charge sheet. Charges were finally filed last year, in the matter of a political appointment – but they were rejected unanimously by a three-judge panel Wednesday morning.
It is not surprising, therefore, that many of the political reactions to the verdict include criticism of the State Attorney's Office, or Prosecution, which is headed by the Attorney General, Yehuda Weinstein.
