Marzel, Ben-Gvir call for probe into Peres's pardon of Katz's killers

Jewish National Front head Baruch Marzel and right-wing activist Itamar Ben-Gvir appealed to Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz and State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss on Wednesday to look into President Shimon Peres's decision to pardon teenager Danny Katz's murderers. "There is a real concern that the pardon was made in exchange for Peres's being elected president by Arab Knesset members," Marzel and Ben-Gvir said. They added that they were considering petitioning the High Court of Justice.
