A-G: Mandelblit cannot demand the grounds for his acquittal in Harpaz Affair

Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein rejected on Sunday a High Court appeal by Cabinet Secretary Avichai Mandelblit to change the grounds in the possible dropping of charges against him in the Harpaz Affair.

For weeks, it has been reported that Weinstein will close all charges against Mandelblit, who is pushing to become the next attorney-general, on grounds of insufficient evidence for a conviction, and not on the grounds of having no basis for an accusation, as Mandelblit has required.

Assuming that Mandelblit is cleared, the grounds for dropping the charges could be very significant, as many would object to his appointment as the next attorney-general if he is only cleared because of insufficient evidence.
