Head of the National Fraud Squad Lt.-Cmdr. Miri Golan ordered Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin on Thursday to hand over all of the material in his possession related to suspicions that Likud MK Yehiel Hazan took equipment from the Knesset storeroom without permission. The police's decision to investigate the affair came a day after Rivlin announced that legal action would not be taken against Hazan. Golan's decision came following consultations with State Prosecutor Eran Shendar who approved the investigation. Hazan was caught on camera taking equipment from the Knesset storeroom related to his trial for allegedly voting twice during a Knesset session in 2003. Police will investigate suspicions that Hazan tried to obstruct justice by taking the equipment.
