PM in­dicted in fraud cases

Evening Times - - THE WORLD TODAY -

IS­RAEL’S at­tor­ney gen­eral has of­fi­cially sub­mit­ted his in­dict­ment against prime min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu, giv­ing him 30 days to ap­peal for im­mu­nity.

The 77-page in­dict­ment was made pub­lic yes­ter­day, charg­ing the Is­raeli leader with bribery, fraud and breach of trust in three sep­a­rate cor­rup­tion cases.

Is­rael’s po­lit­i­cal sys­tem is in dis­ar­ray fol­low­ing the sec­ond in­con­clu­sive elec­tion of the year, mak­ing it un­likely Ne­tanyahu would re­ceive, par­lia­men­tary im­mu­nity from pros­e­cu­tion.

Ne­tanyahu de­nies any wrong­do­ing and has re­jected calls to re­sign.
