Israel PM’s lawyer: Prosecution stacked in Netanyahu case as if dealing with Nazi crimes

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s attorney makes quite an odd comparison when describing the makeup of the prosecution team in his client’s criminal trial that starts later this month.

“We are facing at least 20 prosecutors, the attorney general and an investigative power as if we’re talking about crimes against the Nazis,” Yossi Cohen says today’s High Court of Justice hearing on whether Netanyahu’s tycoon relative can fund his legal defense, according to Channel 13.

Probably he means prosecution against the Nazis.
