In reversal, AG’s lawyer says PM can be recused for violating conflict of interest deal

As the High Court hearing resumes, the lawyer for Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara walks back his earlier remarks that a violation by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of his conflict of interest agreement is not grounds for recusal.

“You can’t rule out all the options in advance; it should not be understood that a conflict of interests over a criminal trial cannot lead to recusing the prime minister,” says Aner Helman.
