Charedi Singer Dedi Graucher, better known as 'DEDI'. Haaretz reports that Graucher's lawyer, Yaron Kostelitz, said, Mr. Graucher gave a donation of several hundred shekels to the sister of a driver who worked with the prime minister for many years, who unfortunately was widowed and left to raise small children, just as he helps many people, and this had nothing to do with the prime minister, nor did he know about it. It's not for nothing that the police decided there was no basis for a criminal investigation.Charedi Singer Dedi Graucher, better known as ‘DEDI’.

It’s not for nothing that the police decided there was no basis for a criminal investigation.

Jerusalem - Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein is investigating a claim that a businessman transferred hundreds of thousands of shekels to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Channel 10 revealed Sunday night.

It was suspected that a haredi businessman called Dede Grauker gave the cash to Netanyahu’s chauffeur and told him to deliver it to the prime minister.

Two PMO employees were allegedly witness to the event and passed on the details to the police.

In response to the Channel 10 report the Justice Ministry released a statement saying that the former state comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss had received information about the alleged incident during the investigation into the “Bibi-Tours Affair.” The state comptroller passed the information to the Attorney-General, who instructed the police in May 2012 to review the information and determine whether there was enough evidence to justify a criminal investigation.

A month ago, the police handed the Attorney-General the conclusions of its investigation, saying that there was not an evidentiary foundation to justify opening a criminal investigation into the case.

The police findings were transferred to officials in the State Attorney’s office where they are currently under review.

The Times Of Israel is reporting, that Anonymous sources close to Graucher stated that Netanyahu had not received any funding from him and that the money was given to the driver for personal reasons.

“Graucher gave a donation of hundreds of shekels to the sister of a driver who had worked with the prime minister for years, just as he has assisted many others, without the prime minister’s knowledge or involvement,” a source said.

Timing is everything. Very funny that this comes out right before the election.

Also hysterical that Ayalon is fired, Liebermen is indicted and Ayalon is a witness for the prosecution.

The Attorney General who did not succeed in prosecuting Olmert, should enjoy no credibility. Dedi is well known as a Baal Chesed and his version is quite believable Time to end the Israeli inquisition!
