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.
