The Police commissioner has called for an end to what he described as "dangerous" verbal attacks on chief state prosecutor Moshe Lador on Wednesday, following the acquittal of former prime minister Ehud Olmert.

Addressing a conference of lawyers in Eilat, Insp.-Gen. Yochanan Danino came to the aid of the embattled Lador saying, "I suggest we all refrain at this time from exaggerated statements and dangerous attacks that could undermine the legitimacy of the prosecution and its head Moshe Lador."

He described Lador as a "dedicated and valued" public servant who has an "impressive career of fighting on behalf of the rule of law and clean government in Israel."

Danino said all of Israeli law enforcement "will learn lessons from this and continue in its determined fight against public corruption on all levels."
