MK Yaakov Litzman to sign plea bargain

On Thursday, a plea bargain was signed between MK Yaakov Litzman (UTJ), mere days before the Attorney-General, Dr. Avichai Mandelblit leaves office.

According to the terms of the deal, Litzman will admit to breach of confidence in the Malka Leifer saga; the accusation of disturbing the course of justice will be removed from the charge sheet. The “Hama’adaniyah” episode will also not appear on the charge sheet. The penalty that has been agreed between the two sides is that Litzman will be given a conditional prison sentence and a symbolic fine of NIS 3,000.

In addition, MK Litzman will resign from the Knesset without being accused of moral turpitude. The plea bargain is thus similar to that signed between the State Prosecution and Shas head Aryeh Deri, who recently resigned his Knesset seat.

  1. Considering what he did, this is not a punishment. It's a mockery of justice.
