Attorney-general to be investigated over illegal worker

The Population and Immigration Authority was expected open an investigation into allegations that Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein employed a foreign worker in his home that did not have a work permit, Channel 10 reported Sunday.
According to the report, Weinstein employed the unpermitted foreign worker until 2009, before he held public office.
The case, first reported in Haaretz, was referred to the State Prosecutor's Office for a preliminary investigation several weeks ago. When it was decided that suspicion that the attorney-general broke the law did indeed exist, the case was transferred to the Population and Immigration Authority for a criminal investigation into the allegations.
