Israel May Indict Labor Officials

Israeli Attorney General Michael Ben-Yair is reportedly considering whether to issue indictments against a number of senior Labor Party officials in connection with the government’s ongoing investigation into alleged misuse of Histadrut labor federation funds.

Transportation Minister Yisrael Kessar, former Histadrut Secretary-General Haim Haberfeld and former Treasurer Arthur Yisraelovitch were among the officials named.

The investigation is based on allegations that previous Histadrut officials misappropriated millions of dollars of members’ dues for their political campaigns.
