Israel’s Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit announced Thursday that he has decided to indict Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for bribery, fraud and breach of trust in Case 4000, and fraud and breach of trust in Cases 1000 and 2000.
The decision was made after a four-day hearing on the prime minister’s cases last month and after three weeks of marathon hearings in the Attorney-General’s office.
The Attorney General will make an official announcement on the charges at 7:30 PM Israel time Thursday evening. Prime Minister Netanyahu scheduled a press conference at 8:30 p.m., an hour after Mandelblit’s expected announcement.
Netanyahu has called the allegations part of a witch hunt, lashing out against the media, police, and the prosecutors.
