Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara denies that she has held discussions on forcing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to take a leave of absence over conflict of interest issues with his legal reform.

In a terse response to a letter from the coalition heads, Baharav-Miara says: “In response to your letter, and without reacting to the issues as you have described them, I want to clarify that contrary to reports in the media, I have not held discussions relating to the leave of absence for the prime minister.”

In the letter, the coalition heads warned her that any steps against Netanyahu would be tantamount to a coup.
