Lapid: Netanyahu prefers police chief who won’t investigate him

Yesh Atid Chairman MK Yair Lapid reacted to Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan’s announcement that he will not extend the term of police chief Roni Alsheikh saying: “There is only one reason… The prime minister wants a convenient police chief, one who will not investigate him.”


Erdan announced the names of three candidates for the post: Jerusalem district commander Yoram Halevy, Tel Aviv district commander David Bitan and former police inspector Moshe Edri. Erdan also said, regarding Alsheikh, that it is mistaken to assume that a term will be automatically extended.
