Balad MK to be tried for Syrian escapade

Published: 12.26.12, 12:23 / Israel News

The Nazareth District Court ruled that the removal of Balad MK Said Naffaa's immunity was in order, and that he can be committed to a criminal trial. Naffaa is accused of visiting an enemy state and making contact with an external agent alongside Druze clergy and senior officials.


In 2007, Naffaa joined a delegation to Syria and while there, met with the country's National Front secretary-general. Naffaa has claimed in the past, that this was a religious visit, but the court ruling stated that the trip wasn't supposed to consist of a "meeting with terrorists in an enemy state." (Ahiya Raved)
