The Likud party demanded the State Prosecutor begin an official criminal investigation concerning the Fifth Dimension, a defunct company once led by current Blue and White leader Benny Gantz.
Likud argued that, in the past, the State Prosecutor claimed legal procedures against those seeking to serve as prime ministers and other public offices should begin “right away, even before elections.”
“It is not to be believed that an alternative policy should be taken only where Benny Gantz and the Fifth Dimension is concerned,” the request stated.
Fifth Dimension was a start-up company created in 2014 and offered various applications, civic and military, for AI. Gantz served as it's CEO of the board of directors from 2015. The company won a 50 million NIS contract with the police in 2016 despite not having a product. The company also claimed it had five clients when in fact it only had one, the police said.
