Dis­abled MK is mocked

The Jewish Chronicle - - WORLD NEWS -

LIKUD MK Oren Hazan has come un­der fire for mock­ing an op­po­si­tion politi­cian’s phys­i­cal dis­abil­ity.

Dur­ing a vote on the univer­sal draft law on Tues­day, Mr Hazan shouted at wheel­chair-bound Yesh Atid MK Karin El­harar: “Need Is­sawi to help you?”

Ms El­harar suf­fers from mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy. Last week, Mr Hazan ac­cused her of il­le­gal dou­ble-vot­ing af­ter she asked Meretz MK Is­sawi Frej to help her cast her vote.

Ear­lier this year, Mr Hazan was ac­cused of sex­ual as­sault, so­lic­it­ing pros­ti­tutes and us­ing crys­tal meth while he man­aged a Euro­pean casino.

Yesh Atid leader, Yair Lapid, called on Knes­set Speaker Yuli Edel­stein to eject Mr Hazan from the plenum.
