Weinstein to decide on criminal investigation of PM this week

Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein will make a decision by the end of the week on whether to open a criminal investigation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s handling of public funds at his Jerusalem residence, legal sources said Saturday night.

Netanyahu hired renowned criminal lawyer Jacob Weinroth to represent him and persuade Weinstein not to open a criminal probe.

Channel 2 reported that he sent the attorney general a letter in which he downplayed the three issues that State Comptroller Joseph Shapira suggested may be criminal in his report last week.
