Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz on Monday criticized Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter's decision to appoint IPS Chief Warden Yaakov Ganot in place of Insp.-Gen. Moshe Karadi as the head of the Israel Police after Karadi resigned following the Zeiler Commission's report on Sunday. In a letter to Dichter, Mazuz addressed accusations against Ganot from 12 years ago, including bribery, fraud and breach of trust. Ganot was exonerated in both the District and Supreme Courts. Despite the acquittal, Mazuz said, "the State Prosecutor at the time, Edna Arbel, sought to discharge Ganot, who was serving as the Northern District commander." Mazuz also mentioned that although there was no way to officially prevent Ganot's appointment, it would be difficult to defend such an appointment if it came before the High Court.
