The Israeli police have said that their investigation has found sufficient evidence that bribery and fraud should be received by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife in a third case of corruption against the leader.
The authorities on Sunday claimed that Netanyahu was granted regulations favoring Bezeq, Israel’s largest telecommunications group as opposed to more positive coverage of him and his wife on Bezeq’s daughter site, Walla.
Netanyahu denies all incorrectness.
“These recommendations were determined and leaked even before the investigations began,” Netanyahu said in a statement on Sunday.
“I am sure that in this case, the authorities concerned will, after examining the question, reach the same conclusion: there was nothing because there is nothing.”
Attorney General will now decide if one shall bring an action in the matter.
If it were to be charged, the four-time minister would face one of his greatest challenge for his political survival.
Despite the dominance of Israeli domination, the newest police appointment comes shortly after the majority of his higher coalition was reduced to an insecure seat in parliament.
The Bezeq case, known as Case 4000, is the most serious of all that Netanyahu has been accused of.
Two of his main trusts have become state witnesses and believed to have given the police intrusive evidence.
Netanyahu held the government’s communications portfolio until last year and surveillance regulation in the field.
Former journalists at the Walla News site have stated that they are under pressure to refrain from reporting negative Netanyahu.
Police say the investigation, which contained testimony of 60 witnesses, revealed that Netanyahu and Bezeq boss Shaul Elovitch conduct a “bribery-based relationship”.
The police also recommend that charges be collected against Elovitch and Ms Polis has already recommended to accuse Netanyahu of corruption charges in two other cases, one which accepts donations from billionaire friends and the other to trade positive media coverage for favorable legislation for the newspaper .
Netanyahu has dismissed the charges as a witch hunt.
