Police Likely To Recommend A Criminal Indictment Against Aryeh Deri

After he was questioned last week for a seventh time by investigators of the Israel Police Lahav 433 Unit, it appears all but certain police are going to recommend the Attorney General move ahead with a criminal indictment against Interior Minister Aryeh Deri.

According to veteran news correspondent Moshe Nussbaum, police are wrapping up the case and will be recommending to indictment the Shas party leader.

It is also reported that Lahav investigators and investigators at the Tax Authority are basing at least some of the suspicions raised against the Shas chairman – mainly the economic transfers investigated against him, but not only them.

“If this trend continues, it will lead to a recommendation to file an indictment against the interior minister,” the report said.
