MK Litzman's assistant released

Assistant Minister Yaakov Litzman, Moti Babchik, who was arrested on Tuesday as part of an investigation into suspected corruption at the Ministry of Health, was released from custody this evening (Tuesday) after the police’s request to extend his detention was not granted.

Babchik’s attorneys, Amit Hadad and Noa Milstein, said “Moti Babchik was released this evening after it became clear that his legal rights had been violated and because the police could not legally claim that he should be detained.”

The lawyers added: “That these allegations are false will become clear when Babchik returns to serve the public of Israel as he has done all his life.”
