Netanyahu’s lawyer says he hasn’t seen AG permission to open probe into PM

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s lawyer says he hasn’t seen the attorney general’s authorization to open a police investigation into the premier, which yielded the charges for which Netanyahu now stands trial.

Boaz Ben-Tzur makes the claim in an interview with Army Radio.

Citing precedents, the defense lawyer says that if the document showing Avichai Mandelblit granted permission to open the probe doesn’t surface, there’s a chance the charges could be canceled. Netanyahu’s lawyers have asked the court to order the prosecution to disclose Mandelblit’s order.
