Gantz: If I'm indicted while serving as PM, I will resign

Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz on Friday commented on the decision of Acting State Attorney Dan Eldad to order that a criminal investigation be launched after the March 2 election into the artificial intelligence company Fifth Dimension, of which Gantz was a senior executive.

Speaking to Channel 12 News, Gantz said he "cannot ignore the political aroma that lies behind the timing of the call for this investigation." He stressed, however, that if he is indicted while serving as Prime Minister, he will resign.
