There is some bad news for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. According to media reports it is learnt that the Israeli police has recommended indicting Netanyahu and his wife Sara for bribery and other offences, the third such recommendation against the premier in recent months.
The attorney general will now decide whether to bring indictments in the case, which centres on regulatory benefits allegedly granted to telecommunications firm Bezeq in exchange for positive coverage from a related media company.
Police in February recommended indicting the prime minister in two other corruption investigations.
According to media reports, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has denied alleged corruption charges against him levelled by the police.
Al Jazeera quoted the Israeli Prime Minister as saying, ‘These recommendations were determined and leaked even before the investigations began.’
‘I’m sure that in this case the relevant authorities, after examining the issue, will reach the same conclusion: that there was nothing because there is nothing,’ Netanyahu added.
