Liberman to Bennett: I have no authority to request a pardon for Azaria

As political tension mounts over the conviction of Sgt. Elor Azaria, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman hit back at his right-wing rival Education Minister Naftali Bennett on Thursday morning by declaring that only the soldier himself, his family or lawyers could request a pardon.

Liberman was responding to a statement by Bennett on Wednesday demanding that the defense minister “bring about an immediate pardon for Elor Azaria so that he doesn’t sit even one day in prison.”
