MK Yaakov Peri To Resign From The Knesset After Allegations He Leaked Info During Deri Investigation

The decision comes just weeks after investigative TV show Uvda reported that Peri had failed a polygraph test after allegedly leaking information to Shas Minister Aryeh Deri about an investigation against him in the 1990s.

Pnina Tamano-Shata, who served in the previous Knesset, will replace Peri in the Israeli parliament.

  1. Following this trend, All Democrat Lawmakers should resign from Congress starting with Adam Schiff- the leaker who leaks when he takes a leak during closed hearings.

  2. So it’s not only in the US that govt ministers are corrupt, in Israel too. Not surprising at all. If there’s no fear from Heaven, there’s no fear from human beings.

  3. Really sad to see but he probably was not strong. There is not a man often in this knesset that knows how to add himself wise to the Land of David.

    Still, this is unfortunate. Good to hope we can see better knesset. Someone might actually think that The Land of David is safe.
