As fresh minister faces charges, Labor slams ‘joke’ of government

Responding to the news that Haim Katz is set to be charged with fraud and breach of trust, the Labor Party says a government with so many ministers suspected of crimes is “unprecedented.”

“The supreme interest of a large part of the government’s senior members is legal survival. This docudrama would be funny if the joke were not on us,” the party says.

Aside from Katz, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Interior Minister Aryeh Deri and Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman are facing possible charges, as well as Likud MK David Bitan.
