An indictment against an Israeli Arab legislator for organizing trips of Israeli Arabs to Syria was throw out. But at the same time it threw out the case against Azmi Beshara, the court allowed cases on similar charges against his two aides to go forward. The court said Beshara could not be tried for illegally organizing trips to an enemy country because he is a member of Knesset. Beshara’s lawyer said he would appeal to the court to drop the charges against the aides as well.
