The State of Israel versus Benjamin Netanyahu. From today, the prime minister of Israel stands accused of corruption. After investigations stretching over three years, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit announced today that he had decided to indict Netanyahu on counts of bribery, fraud, and breach of trust.
We have already had a president, ministers, and a former prime minister indicted on criminal charges. Now another negative record has been broken.
Netanyahu will be indicted for bribery in case 4000, and in case 1000 and 2000 he will be indicted for fraud and breach of trust.
The attorney general also announced that he had decided to indict Shaul Elovitch and Iris Elovitch for bribery in case 4000.
Legal proceedings against Benjamin Netanyahu, Shaul Elovitch and Iris Elovitch are still in progress. They deny the charges against them, and are entitled to the presumption of innocence.
