The Tel Aviv District Court will hand down its ruling on the charges against former Finance Minister Avraham Hirchson on June 8, the court's administration spokeswoman announced on Monday. The state has accused Hirchson of stealing NIS 2.5 million from the National Workers' Federation as well as money laundering, false registration of corporate documents and grand larceny in aggravated circumstances. Hirchson, who is represented by Attorney Ya'acov Weinroth, said the money he received was to be regarded either as a loan towards his salary for serving as the unpaid chairman of the federation or as pension payments in case he continued serving as an MK.
