Court rejects ex-finance minister's appeal on theft charges

The Supreme Court on Monday rejected an appeal filed by former finance minister Avraham Hirchson and imposed on him a 65-month prison term which he was previously sentenced to.
The district court convicted Hirchson of theft after he received monthly patments of NIS 25,000-30,000, and stole money to finance his personal medical prescriptions and trips abroad.
Hirchson was charged with pocketing the funds during his time as head of the National Workers' Union.
