Reporters at the Israel Bar Association conference in Eilat report that Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit had breakfast next to opposition head Yitzhak Herzog (Zionist Union) on Monday.
The seating is suspicious because Mandelblit recommended a police investigation into Herzog's actions.
Herzog's office has confirmed the reports, but stated that other people were also present at the meal, including both men's wives. As it was not a closed meeting, the spokesperson claims that nothing questionable could have happened.
Herzog is suspected of accepting illegal donations during his campaign in the Labor party primaries. Last week the Justice Ministry approved the Attorney General's recommendation to open an investigation into the issue.
