Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein testified before a Population, Immigration and Border Authority (PIBA) panel on Tuesday regarding his household’s alleged employment of an illegal foreign worker.

The hour-long session yielded no definitive results, but Channel 2 reported Wednesday that Weinstein could not recognize the alleged employee when presented with his photo.

Channel 1 reported that it was not likely that measures would be taken against Weinstein, the government’s top legal official.

PIBA learned that Weinstein’s wife, Aviva, hired the Indian national, who had no valid work permit, last year. By September, the authority had enough evidence to press charges. Weinstein’s questioning in connection to the case was approved in June.
