Attorney Jacques Chen joins Netanyahu's legal team

Senior attorney Jacques Chen announced on Monday, "At the prime minister's request, I have joined the team of his lawyers, headed by Dr. [Yaakov] Weinroth."

Responding to a report by Channel 10 Television that he was secretly advising Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in his investigations while representing Avriel Bar Yosef on improprieties in the Israeli purchase of submarines from Germany and Shaul Elovitch on improprieties at the Bezeq communications company, he said, "The claim that this is connected to the Bezeq case and to the case of the vessels is baseless. The prime minister is not suspected in these cases."
