Israeli police recommend indicting Netanyahu for corruption

Israeli police recommend indicting Netanyahu for corruption

As Israeli authorities prepare to indict Benjamin Netanyahu on corruption charges, the Prime Minister has addressed his supporters to reassure them of his innocence and his readiness to battle the charges in court.

Netanyahu faces two corruption charges.

Ynet reported that police are split on whether they have evidence to bring charges against Netanyahu on that that case.

While Zionist Union chair Gabbay has previously said that Netanyahu need not resign over police recommendations for indictment, in his statement Thursday he said that the government could no longer be trusted to make principled decisions uninfluenced by the investigations.

On Monday night, Police Commissioner Roni Alsheich said in an interview with Israel's Channel 2 television that detectives probing Netanyahu had been targeted by private investigators to dig up dirt on them.

"Netanyahu told the ministers that it would not be wise to be the vanguard in this field, noting that Canada is the only country so far that has authorized the export of cannabis", reported the Post.

Support stir in Kashmir, says Pakistan PM
He said the dream of peace and prosperity in the region will remain elusive without resolving the Kashmir dispute. Kashmiris considered themselves Pakistani and wanted to live under the Pakistani flag, he added.

He also referred to claims that sexual harassment allegations against the head of the unit investigating Netanyahu were an attempt to smear him because of the graft probe. The law says that the one to determine whether there is evidence against the prime minister is the attorney general and he consults with the state attorney.

"A large shadow was cast tonight over the police investigations and their recommendations related to Prime Minister Netanyahu".

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's aides have been urging a Likud MK to drop his bill to annex the West Bank, despite it being supported by the majority of Netanyahu's base, so as not to irritate the Trump administration.

Throughout the investigation into both matters, Netanyahu has maintained that he has not committed any wrongdoing. He repeated that in a video posted to Facebook on Wednesday.

The feud comes as local media are reporting that police plan to recommend indicting the Premier as early as next week.

"I wish for the prime minister that he end his term quickly and in a seemly manner", Olmert, also known for his taste for fine cigars, was quoted as saying at an event in Tel Aviv.
