Shas Leader MK Eli Yishai said Tuesday that he was convinced of MK Shlomo Benizri's innocence. Benizri has been charged with bribery, fraud and breach of faith. The charges are based on the exchange of favors between Benizri and businessman and foreign laborer contractor Moshe Sela. Benizri will be placed in the number two slot on Shas' party list, even though Yishai had previously said that the list would not contain anyone against whom criminal charges had been brought. Earlier on Tuesday Benizri claimed that he was being pursued because he was religious.
