Likud MK Oren Hazan pimped prostitutes, used crystal meth — report

Junior Likud Member of Knesset Oren Hazan is apparently more colorful than both his colleagues in Likud and outside it may have imagined: A Channel 2 exposé says Hazan pimped prostitutes in Burgas, Bulgaria, and procured hard drugs — including crystal meth — when he was there last summer.

In the news report, a woman who ran a bordello in which Hazan was “the big boss” — as she put it — tells of the girls Hazan arranged for his “many friends.” Prostitution and drug use are both illegal in Bulgaria.

According to the law in Israel, an MK can resign but cannot be made to quit. While Hazan’s alleged transgressions all took place before he entered the Knesset, his past still casts a long and troubling shadow on his current status as a lawmaker. Hazan is a member of five Knesset committees.

A tweet by Amit Segal, political analyst at Channel 2, shows Hazan (in white shirt at left) betting in a casino in Burgas.
