Minister without portfolio, Tzahi Hanegbi, went on the attack Monday morning against Attorney General Menahem Mazuz, saying it was strange that Mazuz was trying to influence the outcome of his hearing by giving interviews on the matter to the media. Regarding his upcoming hearing about alleged political appointments he made while serving as Environment Minister, Hanegbi reiterated his stance that the appointments were professional, and that he was confident he would be able to prove his innocence during the hearing. Hanegbi, speaking to Israel Radio, added that the indictment was had not yet been delivered to his attorney and that he was still unclear as to the specific charges against him. On Sunday the prosecution informed the High Court of Justice that Hanegbi's indictment would be presented by the end of the week. It would be presented only after Hanegbi's hearing, which had yet to be given a date.
