Likud to appeal fine for breaking campaign finance laws

The Likud party vows to appeal a NIS 350,000 fine levied by State Comptroller Yosef Shapira who determined the ruling party violated campaign finance laws by supporting the “Likudiada” confab in Eilat last year.

Shapira says Likud got media coverage as well as donations from the “Likudiada,” without being official sponsors of the event.

“The Likudiada is a private event run by private businessmen,” Likud says in a statement. “We will appeal this ruling in coming days.”
