Police acknowledge Netanyahu suspected of bribery, fraud, breach of trust

A gag order was issued for all cases involving Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, including the possibility that Netanyahu's former Chief of Staff Ari Harow will become a state witness. Police has recommended he be indicted on those offenses, but the Attorney General has yet to file formal charges.

The two cases mentioned in the police request are known as Case 1000, which involves Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan, who was asked to purchase luxury items for Netanyahu and his wife; and Case 2000, in which Netanyahu tried to concoct a deal with Arnon Mozes, the publisher of the mass-circulation daily Yedioth Ahronoth.

Recordings of the 2014 discussion between Netanyahu and Mozes were uncovered by police on Harow's computer during the course of their investigation into the former Netanyahu aide.

The request itself, dealing with case 100 and 2000, describes suspicions of accepting bribes, committing fraud and breaching the trust invested in him as an elected official.

The investigations have stirred Israeli politics and led to speculation over whether Netanyahu will eventually be forced to step down.

Abu Rudeinah said that the settlements are unlawful and East Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza Strip are all Palestinian territories, in response to statements by Netanyahu in which he reportedly said that the West Bank and East Jerusalem are part of Israel.
