The Civil Service Disciplinary Tribunal convened a hearing on Thursday regarding the plea bargain former PMO chief of staff Natan Eshel's lawyers brokered earlier this month in which Eshel agreed to admit charges of breaching civil service discipline and conduct unbecoming of a civil service employee.

A spokesman for the Civil Service Commission said that the tribunal had been asked to confirm the plea bargain reached between the prosecution and Eshel's counsel.

During the hearing, both sides put forward their arguments relating to the matter, and the tribunal is expected to make a decision in the next few days as to whether it accepts the arrangement, the spokesman added.
