Hanegbi was found not guilty of the serious charge of appointing over 100 (?) of his cronies (many from Mercaz Likud) to government positions. It is impossible now to tell what damage was done, by people unsuited for the job, many of whom did not even turn up for work. Hanegbi was acquitted on the ridiculous ground that appointing cronies was not officially against the law at the time!! Many jurists have since stated that Hanegbi's actions were against all criteria of good government, and commons sense, and there should even have been a need for formal legislation. Hanegbi, is a public figure who should now pay the full price for the corruptions and cronyism which he turned into a public norm (from the 'high diving board').
