Israelis hold ”march of shame” against Netanyahu in Tel Aviv

Jerusalem: Israelis in large numbers held a rally on Saturday night in Tel Aviv against the government’s police recommendations bill, which the critics believe is aimed at shielding the corruption cases labelled against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The bill will prevent Israel’s police from making public their recommendations to indict following an investigation”, reported local media.

The “march of shame” rally, which was organised by the leaders of the weekly anti-corruption demonstrations, was attended by tens of thousands of people.

The protest was held near Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit’s residence in Petah Tikva.

Similar protests were also held in Jerusalem and Haifa.

The Prime Minister came under the scanner in two graft cases, known as cases 1000 and 2000, for receiving gifts from business tycoons and making a deal with the owner of a newspaper daily ”for better coverage in return for curbs on a rival daily”, said a local media. (ANI)
