Weinstein: Bat Yam's decision not to depose Lahiani 'extremely unreasonable'

Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein on Friday criticized as "extremely unreasonable" the decision by Bat Yam's City Council not to depose Mayor Shlomi Lahiani after he was indicted on October 1 on bribery, fraud and breach of public trust charges.
In response to a High Court petition which aims to fire Lahiani and disqualify him from running for reelection on October 22, Weinstein said that Lahiani's fate should mirror that of the the mayors of Upper Nazareth and Ramat Hasharon who were forced to step down by the High Court because they were facing indictments.
The High Court was scheduled to discuss the petition against Lahiani's standing for reelection on Sunday.
