Netanyahu officially indicted on corruption charges

Jan 29,2020

Netanyahu is charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust in three separate cases.

Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit has filed an indictment with the Jerusalem District Court against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for corruption.

This comes after Netanyahu announced on Tuesday the withdrawal of the parliamentary immunity request that he had presented to the Knesset a month ago.

A parliamentary committee was set to be formed to discuss Netanyahu’s immunity request and was likely to reject it, but his withdrawal of the request enabled the Attorney General to file the indictment.

Netanyahu, as per the indictment, is charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust in three separate cases.
