Israeli AG decries bill to protect prime minister from prosecution

Benjamin Netanyahu
Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit criticized a bill Tuesday that would grant serving prime ministers immunity from criminal prosecution as "unacceptable."

Speaking at a think tank seminar in Jerusalem, Mandelblit said the bill would turn the top government position into a "refuge" for criminals.

The bill, championed by Likud MK David Amsalem, has been referred to as the "French bill," based on a French constitutional amendment that would not allow law enforcement to open an investigation of a sitting prime minister.
