MK Ran Cohen: Benizri should suspend himself from Knesset activities

MK Ran Cohen of Meretz called upon MK Benizri to recuse himself from activities in the Knesset following the announcement of Benizri's fraud and bribery conviction by the Jerusalem District Court on Tuesday. Cohen said that "it is totally unreasonable that an MK should participate in [Knesset] deliberations and in votes critical to the Israeli public" as he has been convicted of serious offenses.
