Aharonovitch: I want to prosecute MK Zoabi for behavior at Haifa protest

Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch on Saturday vowed to make every effort to press charges against Arab MK Hanin Zoabi for an incident at an anti-war protest in Haifa on Friday that briefly left the lawmaker in handcuffs.

 

"I am ashamed of Zoabi's deliberate and despicable behavior," Aharonovitch wrote on Facebook, "Once again she proved that she it is not worthy of being a member of the Knesset. To call the district police commander disgusting names is disgraceful. I'll make sure she is investigated and punished,"
