‘Israeli’ Attorney Orders Police Examination of Charges against UN Envoy Danny Danon
‘Israeli' Attorney Shai Nitzan instructed the Zionist Police on Monday to examine the corruption allegations made against Zionist UN Ambassador Danny Danon.
According to an investigative report by the ‘Israel' Television News Company, Danon used public funds and donations to create a mechanism of paying millions of shekels in "salaries" to dozens of Likud activists and their families in return for supporting him in the party's primaries.
Danon, who serves as the World Likud chairman, used his power in the organization to take hold of a non-profit organization called Making Zionism ["Osim Tzionut"] and placed his confidant Yaakov Hagoel at its helm.
Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael [KKL] funneled vast sums into Making Zionism, especially during 2014, the year primaries in the Likud were held.
The Making Zionism non-profit launched a project dubbed "Cluster Coordinators" to spread the values of Zionism the world over, with each coordinator paid several thousand shekels.
The organization has also been planning conferences for Danon using its own funds, the report said. In one example, it organized an event which was attended mostly by Likud activists, and in which Danon gave the keynote address.
Both Danon and the Making Zionism organization denied the allegations.
