Effort to push for investigation of PM gains steam

Labor MK Erel Margalit’s effort to use the Supreme Court to force a criminal investigation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s role in the submarine scandal advanced a stage Tuesday when an online petition signed by some 20,000 people was sent to Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit.

The letter included a notice of an upcoming Supreme Court petition against Mandelblit’s decision to merely check allegations of wrongdoing by Netanyahu and his confidant David Shimron rather than open a criminal investigation. Such a warning letter must be sent two weeks before petitioning the Court.
