State prosecutor says he was ‘shocked’ to hear attacks by Netanyahu, allies
State Prosecutor Shai Nitzan blasts Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Justice Minister Amir Ohana, decrying a campaign allegedly aimed at lowering public trust in his office.
“I have to say I was shocked to hear his public attacks on the prosecution,” Nitzan says of Ohana in a closed discussion in Eilat, on the sidelines of a legal conference, in footage obtained by Channel 13. “He made blunt and severe remarks about the prosecution.
“There is a campaign with the sole purpose of causing public distrust in the State Prosecutor’s Office. And after they hammer [that message] every day, they say, ‘Here, look, public trust is down.’ Of course it’s down. There are huge forces doing whatever they can to harm the public trust.”
