Were these two pressuring Shas to exit the government? Is the police once more using its powers for politics? I guess you don't even have to ask any more, right?

Shas MK Benizri Convicted of Bribery and Other Crimes

25 Adar Bet 5768, 01 April 08 03:25

( MK Shlomo Benizri (Shas) was convicted of various crimes Tuesday morning by the Jerusalem's District Court.

The case was launched after a series of investigative reports by Yediot Acharonot in which the MK was said to have received several perks, payments and favors in return for services he provided in his capacity as Minister of Labor and Welfare to contractor Moshe Sela. Benizri was found guilty of bribery, fraud and breach of trust after Sela turned state's witness and testified against the senior Shas MK.

Rabbi Reuven Elbaz was also convicted of coordinating the misdeeds in the case.
