Retired police deputy commissioner Yoav Seglovich, who joined Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid party last week, has commented about the investigation into Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu).
"I still think we could have put him on trial under aggravated circumstances, but the attorney general thought differently," he told Channel 10. "In a law-abiding state, the police's role is to loudly express its opinion but it doesn't make the final decision."
Seglovich then explained his reasoning in joining Yesh Atid. "I could have been a commentator, a politician, or neither of the two. After a long time, during which I decided to turn to politics, I examined the different parties and chose Lapid's. There was an immediate click between us."
During the talk, he also spoke about his friend Ephraim Bracha, who committed suicide over the Rabbi Pinto affair. "I think about him a lot. One of the best officers that I have known and one of the people closest to my heart."
