Deri, under criminal investigation, asks his followers not to rebel

Interior Minister Arye Deri called upon his loyalists in Shas on Sunday to refrain from starting a campaign professing his innocence similar to the one that accompanied his unsuccessful effort to avoid jail time the last time he was investigated.

Before Deri began serving two years of a three-year sentence for bribery and breach of trust, he was at the center of a campaign under the slogan "He is innocent" that included rallies and songs. When he entered prison in 2000, his followers started a yeshiva outside the facility.
