After the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court ruled Tuesday morning that the crimes which MK Tzahi Hanegbi was convicted of involved moral turpitude, the Kadima MK said that the decision "is a heavy blow, but I respect it."

Hanegbi told a press conference he will send a letter to the Knesset confirming his departure.

"My 22 years of service in the Knesset are ending now," Hanegbi said. "This moment is very sad. Sad because I know what challenges face Israel, and my ability to assist the country is now weaker."
