Omri Sharon's associates claim judge was biased

Sources close to Omri Sharon expressed their anger on Wednesday with Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court Judge Edna Bekenstein, following Sharon's sentence on Tuesday to nine months in jail. Sharon's associates claimed that the Judge was biased against him from the outset of the trial. Kadima members have avoided reacting publicly to the verdict. There is a difference of opinion as to the damage it will cause to Kadima's election campaign, but a survey published Wednesday morning showed a loss of 3 mandates, Army Radio reported.
