Mandelblit: Leaks problematic, probe going fine

Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit is pushing back against claims that the investigation into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is being mismanaged, during a speech at the Netanya Academic College.

“The investigation is being conducted to my satisfaction,” he says.

He also slams the near-daily leaks of new information from recordings made of Netanyahu and Yedioth Ahronoth publisher Arnon Mozes which apparently form a linchpin of one of the probes, but says those trying to call for him to drop or push forward the investigation aren’t having an effect.

“The uncovering of the recordings could cause obstruction … voices from the outside don’t have any influence,” he says.

Politicians and others have called in recent days for Mandelblit to recuse himself from the investigation, while Netanyahu and his cohorts have accused the media of trying to force the attorney general into approving an indictment.
