Mesika turns state witness, suspends himself

Samaria Regional Council head Gershon Mesika indefinitely suspended himself on Thursday, because he has become a state witness in a massive bribery case against public officials including former Yisrael Beytenu deputy interior Minister Faina Kirschenbaum.

He will be replaced by his deputy, Yossi Dagan, who will now be the acting council head.

In a letter that he wrote to Samaria residents, Mesika said, “I would like to inform you that I have decided to suspend myself from my position as the head of the Samaria Regional Council and as a result, I am immediately stopping my involvement in the affairs of the council.”
