Bayit Yehudi Chari Naftali Bennett on Friday came to the defense of his political competitors Likud-Beytenu leaders Binyamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Liberman, slamming recent legal moves against each as politically motivated, Army Radio reported.

Speaking at a Ramat Gan political discussion, Bennett slammed both the Attorney-General's decision to indict Liberman and the State Comptroller's decision to promulgate his draft report on Netanyahu's "Bibi-Tours" affair just weeks before the general election.



"Theoretically it helps us because it hurts our rivals, but this is not acceptable. How is it that they're investigating Liberman for 12 years and it pops up suddenly just before the elections?" he asked.

"And how is it that the 'Bibi-Tours' Affair is sitting with the state comptroller for such a long time and exactly three-and-a-half weeks before the elections they found the need to distribute it? It wasn't possible to wait until a week after the elections?" he continued.
