The  Likud party disavows an activist who suggested that members of the public prosecutor’s office should be “executed.”

Michal Ben Shushan made the remarks in a chat of Likud activists yesterday.

Following publication of the remarks, the Likud party says Ben Shushan has not been a party member since 1998.

“Former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu completely condemns these inciting remarks against the members of state prosecutor’s office,” the Likud statement says, adding that Netanyahu called on police to open an investigation.

Netanyahu, who is on trial in three corruption cases, has frequently railed against the prosecutor’s office, alleging they were trying to oust him from power.
