A-G Approves Criminal Investigation Against Zoabi


Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein approved on Friday the launching of a criminal investigation against MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad) on suspicion of incitement to violence and offending a public servant.

The investigation is over a recent incident in which Arab rioters clashed with security forces during a demonstration in Nazareth. There has been no decision as of yet regarding an investigation into Zoabi's conduct during a violent demonstration in Haifa last Friday, during which she was handcuffed for several minutes.
