Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter responded on Monday evening to criticism over his appointment of IPS Chief Warden Yaakov Ganot as the new head of the Israel Police, saying that a petition submitted to the High Court of Justice against Ganot's nomination was "expected and taken into account." Speaking at a Jerusalem conference on sports and violence, Dichter said that "It's been a long time since we've had a police chief with as impressive a record as Ganot's." Various legal officials, including Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz, have attacked Dichter's decision due to Ganot's having been investigated for bribery, fraud and breach of trust 12 years ago.
