Police say they have finished investigating Yamina MK Abir Kara after he had been caught casting an illegal double vote in the Knesset last year.

The Lahav 433 anti-corruption unit says in the coming days the case notes will be transferred to the State Attorney’s Office for review and a decision.

The incident occurred last July during a plenum vote on a bill limiting unemployment benefits.

Kara has maintained that the double vote was an innocent mistake. Kara, a deputy minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, said at the time that he had accidentally voted from the computer of fellow Yamina MK Idit Silman.
