MK Haim Katz (Likud) voluntarily took a polygraph test on Monday in order to disprove claims by Knesset Economics Committee head Carmel Shama-Hacohen (Likud) that he threatened to "finish him off politically" if he continued to support the recommendations of a committee headed by Professor Eytan Sheshinski on gas reforms.

Katz sent the results of the test to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and asked him to take action against Shama-Hacohen.

Shama Hacohen responded by accusing Katz of being corrupt and by vowing to quit the Knesset if he is found to be telling the truth by a polygraph test run by an independent administrator.
