Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz on Monday rejected claims by former justice minister Haim Ramon's lawyers that police were deliberately withholding information in the alleged sexual harassment investigation against Ramon. After looking into the claims, Mazuz said that mistakes were made, but that these mistakes were "inflated" by the press and turned into claims of "a conspiracy." The Attorney-General's office wrote to Dan Sheinman, Ramon's lawyer, that "after checking the matter, no basis was found for the serious and decisive claims in your appeal to the prosecution, including the claim on the matter of withholding essential information from the defense and serious discrimination, as it were, of the rights of the accused." The statement added that "there were mistakes, [made] innocently, but these were corrected, with the prosecution's initiative, as soon as they were discovered."
