MK Nitzan Horowitz on Wednesday came out against the "wild assault" against State Attorney Moshe Lador calling for his resignation after former prime minister Ehud Olmert was acquitted of major corruption charges against him.

"This is a lynch in a public square by special interests who want a weak and submissive prosecutor that is ingratiating to the heads of government and capital," Horowitz said.

The crude attacks of the past 24 hours, he continued, have no connection to legitimate criticism of the prosecutor. "Terrorizing the state prosecutor presents a real danger to the rule of law in Israel," he added, calling on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Justice Minister Yaakov Ne'eman and other government authorities to stand by Lador and protect the public interest.
