Netanyahu Attacks Police Chief As Corruption Investigations Loom

Netanyahu Attacks Police Chief As Corruption Investigations Loom

"It is shocking to discover that the commissioner has repeated the mistaken and ridiculous suggestion that Prime Minister Netanyahu sent private investigators after the police who are investigating him", the post said.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu sent a public video telling the citizens of Israel not to fret over "what will be?" with regards to the looming recommendation by the police that is expected in the near future to bring charges against the Prime Minister. So I want to calm you: "there will be nothing, because I know the truth", he said. "The State of Israel is a nation of law".

Netanyahu, 68, has served as prime minister since March 2009.

Netanyahu added many police recommendations go nowhere. In 2000, between his terms, police recommended that Netanyahu and his wife be prosecuted on suspicion of bribery and the theft of gifts to the state. "So, don't be under pressure".

Another probe was over secret talks with the publisher of a major Israeli newspaper in which Netanyahu allegedly requested positive coverage in exchange for reining in a free pro-Netanyahu daily. In return he offered to have the circulation of a rival, pro-Netanyahu paper reduced, presumably through influencing its owner, the USA businessman and conservative financier Sheldon Adelson.

BP reports one of its strongest quarters in years
It does expect long-term earnings to benefit from the reduction in U.S. federal corporate tax to 21% from 35%. In the fourth quarter of 2017, the company bought back shares worth 343 million Dollars .

Responding on Thursday to Alsheich's interview, coalition chairman David Amsalem (Likud) came to Netanyahu's defense, echoing the prime minister's attack on Alsheich and seemingly suggesting the police chief shared some responsibility for recent terror attacks due to his "obsession" with the prime minister. It would be up to the attorney general to decide whether to put Netanyahu on trial. Neither set of recommendations ripened into charges, with attorneys general citing insufficient evidence to indict.

"I am certain that in the end of the day, the legal authorities can only reach one conclusion, the simple truth: There is nothing", said Netanyahu.

Netanyahu has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing throughout the corruption probe.

"Netanyahu made it clear to the ministers that Israel should not be the pioneer in this context, since besides Canada there is no country in the world that exports the drug", she said.
