Public Security Minister and Israel Beiteinu MK Yitzhak Aharonovitch responded on Monday to the charges leveled at him by Kadima chair Tzipi Livni and reiterating his ongoing support of the police, which recommended pressing charges against party leader and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.
"I support the police and the investigation team [that probed Lieberman]," the former deputy police chief Aharonovitch said at a press conference. "There is no reason to repeat it every morning, my support is ongoing."
"I am in charge of the police and as the minister in charge of the police, I support the police and the investigation team, who are doing their work well and professionally," he continued. "Livni, who sat in a government while members of her party were being investigated, is the last one who can scold anyone."
