Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz got tired of waiting on Tuesday and informed former Health Minister and Minister of Social Affairs Shlomo Benizri that he was going to indict him on charges of accepting a bribe, fraud and breach of faith and other crimes. Mazuz had scheduled a hearing for Benizri and his lawyer, Yair Ze'ev Wimisberg for Tuesday, but they failed to show up. He had scheduled a hearing two weeks earlier, on January 16, but they failed to show up for that one also. Benizri had appealed to the High Court for an interim injunction to postpone the hearing, but the court rejected the appeal on January 15.
