Netanyahu: Rittman should have recused himself from investigation
In third Facebook post over the past three days, Netanyahu continues onslaught against the Israel Police over commissioner's allegations private investigators were hired by Netanyahu to target police officers and Lahav 433 commander's insinuation the PM sent female officer to file sexual harassment complaint against him.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attacked the Israel Police on Friday for the third time in three days.

 

 

"When police investigators believe such delusional and fictitious claims that the prime minister was acting against them personally and sent private investigators against them, how could they objectively investigate and submit recommendations against him?" he wrote in a Facebook post. "We are amazed to learn this is exactly what happened in the investigation of the prime minister."

Netanyahu's onslaught follows an interview given by Police Commissioner Roni Alsheikh to the investigative TV show Uvda, during which he claimed that "powerful" elements had tried to collect information about police officers involved in the investigations against the prime minister.

 

The police are expected to soon submit their recommendation to charge Netanyahu in the illicit gifts affair, as sufficient evidence exists to indict him for receiving bribes.

 

"First, we learned of a letter written by the head of the investigative unit, (Roni) Rittman, to (then) Attorney General Weinstein, in which Rittman's lawyers implied that the prime minister had sent the female officer who filed a sexual harassment complaint against (Rittman)," Netanyahu wrote on Friday.

 

He asserted that Rittman, the head of the Anti Fraud Unit, should have recused himself from the investigations against the prime minister.

 

"You decide: what does this say about the integrity of the investigation, and what does this say about the nature of the recommendations?" Netanyahu concluded.
