Israeli Police Decide to Indict PM Netanyahu; PM's Wife Claims Gifts Given to Her,Not Bibi

Israel's Channel 2 News reported last night that Israel Police will recommend issuing an indictment against Prime Minister Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu over the "gifts scandal" (a.k.a. "Case 1,000"), the Jewish Press website reports today (February 11, 2017).

According to the report, the police will require between four and six weeks to solidify its recommendation to the prosecution, a period during which the prime minister is expected to be interrogated at least one more time.

Police are not sure yet whether the recommended indictment will be only for fraud and breach of trust, or also for taking a bribe.

Meanwhile, according to Israel's Channel 10 News, Sara Netanyahu, the PM's wife, has already revealed the defense's strategy, by claiming her husband had no knowledge of the gifts she received from his tycoon friends, Arnon Milchan and James Packer.
