Herzog facing calls to suspend himself due to probe

Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog vowed to fight to clear his name and save his political career Tuesday amid calls for him to suspend himself if Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit orders police to upgrade its initial probe of alleged campaign fundraising violations into a full criminal investigation.

Despite rampant rumors that the police have requested the Justice Ministry to convert the initial review of Herzog-related issues to a full criminal investigation, including questioning him under caution, the Attorney-General’s Office adamantly refused to confirm or deny the reports. The refusal to respond was unusual, as the reports have gotten specific, including mentioning that Mandelblit, head State Prosecutor Shai Nitzan, and the head of police investigations will meet in the coming days to decide the issue.
