Netanyahu's former aide to testify in bribery case

Netanyahu's former aide to testify in bribery case

In the investigation labeled Case 1000, Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, are suspected of receiving illicit gifts worth tens of thousands of dollars from Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan. By signing a witness deal with the state, Harrow will not face any jail time, and will have his penalties limited to six months of community service and a $200,000 fine.

Netanyahu's office has repeatedly denied wrongdoing over the investigations, portraying the accusations as a witch hunt against him and his family by a hostile media opposed to his hard-line political views.

There are now two investigations focused on the prime minister.

According to some experts, the push for recognizing a Palestinian state within Australia's Labor Party mirrors efforts by left-wing activists in.

Another former Netanyahu aide who worked with Harow said that his testimony could be a "bombshell" against the prime minister, given the extent of his knowledge. In the 2000 case (the contacts with "Yedioth Ahronoth" publisher Arnon Mozes), he is one of two suspects at this stage.

"Case 3000" involves a $1.5 billion deal to acquire three additional submarines for the Israeli Navy from the German manufacturer ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS).

According to the report, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit has made a decision to seek an indictment in the coming days. Investigators reportedly have asked if Adelson was aware of the deal.

The Supreme Court rules that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu must publicize a full account of his phone calls with conservative American Jewish gambling mogul Sheldon Adelson, his backer and publisher of the free newspaper Israel Hayom. And though Israeli prime ministers have been taken down by corruption investigations, a sitting prime minister has never been indicted.

The reporter, Raviv Drucker, has requested the material under Israel's Freedom of Information Law, calling the information of public interest. The police recommendation does not carry any legal weight and it is for prosecutors to decide whether to press charges or not.

A close ally of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he is relaxed and confident amid reports of the slew of corruptions charges against him. "While Israeli courts have whittled away many of these limits in recent decades, they have not abolished them completely".
