In response to press reports about the conversations between the parties, Shendar called this possiblity “really undignified and uneasonable”.
Although neither the Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit nor Netanyahu confirmed the contacts, the mainstream media of the country gave extensive coverage to the issue in recent days.
According to Channel 13, the exchanges began weeks ago in the utmost secrecy at the request of the now head of the opposition, who would plead guilty to breach of trust and temporarly retired from politics.
But the TV station said that Mandelblit insists on a minimun sentence of community service and that the leader of the ultraright Likud party admitts moral turpitude, which is the main obstacle in the negotiations, because it will definitly bury its political career.
Shendar claimed that Netanyahu deliberately started the conversations at the last minute because he knows Mandelblit will leave office at the end of this month.
Netanyahu, who lost power in June last year, was the first head of government in Israel’s history to be impeached while in office.
