Israeli police recommend PM Netanyahu be charged with bribery

Israeli police recommend PM Netanyahu be charged with bribery

Israeli police recommend indicting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara on bribery charges involving Israel's telecom giant.

They recommended Ms Sara Netanyahu face charges of bribery, fraud, breach of trust and obstruction of justice.

In exchange, Elovitch, a long-time friend of Netanyahu's, allegedly ordered the Walla News website to provide favorable coverage of the Israeli premier and his wife.

"These recommendations were decided upon and leaked even before the investigation began".

The Israeli police have already recommended charging Netanyahu for bribery and breach of trust in Case 1000 and Case 2000.

There are two other cases of corruption against him.

The other coalition partners have previously deferred bolting, saying they would await a formal decision by Israel's attorney general to press charges.

The Bezeq case, known as Case 4000, is the most serious of all those of which Mr Netanyahu has been accused.

In February, police recommended indicting Mr Netanyahu in two other corruption investigations.

Homeland Security arrests about 50 migrants who crossed United States border, official says
On Fox & Friends, Border Patrol Foundation president defends pepper spraying latinx migrants because "it's natural". A young woman fell to the ground unconscious, and two babies cried, tears streaming from the gas.

Israelis have been holding protests to demand the prime minister's resignation over the corruption scandals, but Netanyahu has described the events as part of efforts meant to topple him "at any cost".

This is the third such police recommendation against Netanyahu in recent months.

The prime minister insists that he and his wife have done nothing wrong or illegal and that he intends to remain in office. Mr Netanyahu is in his second stint as prime minister. She also illegally paid approximately $10,000 for private chefs, prosecutors said.

The head of the opposition Labour party, Mr Avi Gabbay, renewed his call for Mr Netanyahu to resign after the latest recommendations were released.

"Netanyahu must go home before he destroys the law enforcement in order to save his own skin".

"He'll send a message to the attorney general that everyone knew about these three police reports and they still voted for him and want him in power", Hazan said. The White House is trying to build a coalition of Middle Eastern leaders to deter Iran, to that end encouraging the warming of relations between Israel and Arab states that outwardly shun it and sidelining the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Mr Netanyahu held the government's communications portfolio until a year ago and oversaw regulation in the field.

"A prime minister with so many criminal cases around him can not continue in his job and must resign", said Avi Gabbay, the head of the Labor party.
