Israeli Police to Recommend Corruption Indictment of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Israeli police recommend indicting Netanyahu for corruption: report

Israeli police chiefs will recommend to the country's attorney general that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu be indicted on corruption charges, according to reports in local media.

The bill, instigated by MK Yoav Kish from Netanyahu's own party, was supposed to come before a Knesset committee on Sunday. "At this stage, the Treasury will remind the participants that any confrontation can be avoided if the government chooses not to export cannabis to the United States, but Netanyahu reiterated the administration's position in Washington, stressing that it would not necessarily serve Israel's interests".

Netanyahu has been questioned seven times by police over the allegations.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Netanyahu said State Attorney Shai Nitzan, the head of the state prosecution, has stated that at least half the cases in which the police recommend charges are closed without indictments.

In a rare interview on the cases on Wednesday for Hadashot news's investigative program "Uvda", Alsheich rebuffed as "untrue" Netanyahu's earlier claim that most police recommendations are eventually trashed.

One reportedly concerns claims Mr Netanyahu improperly received lavish gifts from Hollywood and business figures. "Any sane person would look at these comments and ask how the police chief would be able to conduct an impartial investigation of the prime minister".

Case 2000 involves a suspected illicit quid-pro-quo deal between Netanyahu and Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper publisher Arnon Mozes that would have seen the prime minister weaken a rival daily, the Sheldon Adelson-backed Israel Hayom, in return for more favorable coverage from Yedioth. "It is shocking that the police chief would hint that the prime minister was involved in a case of assault".

Mr Netanyahu, who has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, responded in a Facebook post.

The corruption allegations have sparked a backlash across Israel, with people staging "Marches of Shame" in cities against reported corruption by Netanyahu. "But in the end, I am certain that the relevant and authoritative legal powers that be will, at the end of the day, reach the one true decision, that there is nothing here".
