Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday slammed the media for not questioning his former Justice Minister Tzipi Livni about the private investigators she reportedly hired to follow him in 2009.

The use of private investigators to track Netanyahu and his wife was reportedly done by the Kadima party prior to the 2009 election, when it was headed by Livni, currently the head of Hatnuah and a co-founder of the Zionist Union.

Netanyahu stated that the media has been “silent” since the report was aired a few days ago, adding that Livni has been interviewed twice since and not asked about it.

“Just imagine what would have happened if the Likud had sent private investigators to follow Tzipi Livni and her husband,” Netanyahu said.
