The Israel Police recommended to the state prosecutor's office on Wednesday that interim Likud party Chairman Tzahi Hanegbi be indicted for making illegal political appointments when he was environment minister from 2001 to 2003. After reviewing the investigative file into the Hanegbi case, Attorney General Menahem Mazuz will make the decision whether or not to indict him, Israel Radio reported. The probe was headed by a special investigative team set up by Insp.-Gen. Moshe Karadi, made up of representatives from all three of the police's top investigative units - the National Fraud Squad, the International Serious Crimes Unit and the Economics Crime Unit. The head of the team, Lt.-Cmdr. Yoav Siglovitz, head of the Economic Crimes unit, was appointed to his senior position by Hanegbi before he was forced to resign from his position as internal security minister in August due to the suspicions against him.
