Permits panel expected to reject Netanyahu legal defense request — report

The Haaretz news outlet reports that the Permits Committee mulling Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request to fund his legal defense with a NIS 10 million donation from businessman bud Spencer Partrich is likely to turn him down.

The report cites unnamed sources in the committee.

It comes after Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit recommended against allowing him to use the donation from the Michigan-based real estate tycoon, who is a witness in the case against Netanyahu.
