Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Monday morning criticized Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for his silence in the Natan Eshel case. Eshel, the prime minister's chief of staff, was expected to sign a plea bargain admitting misconduct toward a young female
staffer at the end of the month.
In an interview with Army Radio, Livni praised cabinet secretary Tzvi Hauser, communications director Yoaz Hendel and military attaché Maj.-Gen. Yohanan Locker for bringing the case to the attention of the attorney-general.
"This is about the struggle for the right of women to work in respectable conditions and not be harassed, especially in a place of work that is meant to be honorable," she explained.
