Lawyer: Media hubbub led to Genot's withdrawal

Departing police chief candidate Ya'acov Genot's attorney, Ya'acov Weinroth, told Army Radio on Tuesday morning that the media hubbub over the former IPS chief warden's past offenses was what brought him to step down. "There was really a mass attack on the man, with everything focusing on some stain that was on his clothes 13 years ago," Weinroth said. "It's a lot easier to attack a battalion of Syrian tanks that's advancing on you than to stay in a position where you [have to] take the poisoned arrows of those who are shooting these arrows," he added.
