Israel News Company reports that senior legal officials say AG Mendelblit concluded deliberations on the telecom graft probe known as Case 4000
Attorney General Avichay Mendelblit is expected to indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of bribery charges in one of his corruption cases, the Television News Company reported on Friday.
According to the report, a senior legal official said Mendelblit’s team concluded deliberations on Netanyahu’s telecom graft probe, also known as Case 4000, in which the prime minister is suspected of intervening with regulators to help telecom tycoon Bezeq with a deal worth some 1 billion shekels to its owner, Shaul Elovit, in exchange for favorable coverage on the Bezeq-owned news site, Walla.
Mendelblit, the official said, has adopted the State Prosecutor’s stance and intends to charge Netanyahu in the case. Deliberations have also concluded on Case 1000, in which the premier is suspected of receiving lavish gifts in return for favors to film producer Arnon Milchan.
Mendelblit’s bureau remains undecided on the third case, in which Netanyahu is accused of offering the publisher of the newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth Arnon Mozes advantageous government media policy in return for favorable news coverage.
