Israel Police National Fraud Squad recommended Wednesday that MK Yehiel Hazan (Likud) be indicted for allegedly stealing voting equipment from the Knesset. "There is an evidentiary basis to press charges against Hazan," police announced. Evidence was transferred to the state attorney's office so that they could make the final decision regarding the rest of the investigation. Hazan was suspected of casting his voice twice in a late-night budget vote in 2003. He allegedly tried to steal the voting equipment that could have served as evidence against him. He first denied the theft accusations, but upon learning that he was caught on tape, he changed his testimony, saying he did not take the system's "brain."
