Former Kadima MK Tzachi Hanegbi on Monday opposed the prosecution's request to extend the deadline for issuing an appeal in his case.

Judge Musia Arad, President of the Jerusalem District Court, responded to Hanegbi's request for an extension to submit his reply to the appeal until next Sunday. According to his claim, he had not received a copy of the prosecution's request at the time of its submission.

Due to the the prosecutor's strike, the prosecution had not submitted its appeal on Hanegbi's acquittal of most of the charges against him. Hanegbi was convicted of perjury for which the court had imposed moral turpitude, forcing Hanegbi to step down from his Knesset seat pending his legal appeal.
