A-G Weinstein: Suspend Nazareth Illit's Mayor


Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein yesterday (Wednesday) submitted to the special committee that was formed to examine mayoral indictments the name of the mayor of Nazareth Illilt, Shimon Gaspo, recommending him for suspension due to the seriousness of the corruption charges being brought against him.

"The offenses being alleged against Gaspo are quite serious in nature, and point to corruption at a governmental level by a public official, thus potentially compromising the integrity of the law," Weinstein said.
