MK Michaeli to Edelstein: Form Ethics Committee immediately

Over two months since the 20th Knesset was inaugurated, it still does not have an Ethics Committee to which MKs can complain about inappropriate behavior by their colleagues.

The problem became especially acute this week in light of reports that MK Oren Hazan (Likud) allegedly pimped out prostitutes and provided crystal meth to Israeli tourists while managing a casino in Burgas, Bulgaria.

As such, Zionist Union faction chairwoman Merav Michaeli wrote a letter to Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein in the name of her faction Wednesday, demanding that he reinstate the committee immediately.
