MK Zehava Gal-On, Chairman of opposition party Meretz, called on Sunday for Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit to suspend himself from the investigation into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's conduct.
"For three months, the police had recordings of Prime Minister Netanyahu conducting a negotiation with a businessman about mutual benefits," Gal-On said. "It can't be that in light of all of this Mandelblit didn't immediately open an investigation and simply dissolved the suspicions with the laundered term 'checkup'," she continued.
"Lacking any public explanations about the suspension of the investigation, a strong suspicion arises [that there are elements trying to defend the prime minister] that there is a strong conflict of interests."
