Israeli Leader Questions Integrity of Police Probes Against Him

Israeli Leader Questions Integrity of Police Probes Against Him”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the plan to be frozen early this week despite support from the Health, Agriculture and Finance ministries, Hadashot news reported Wednesday evening.

"There will be nothing, because I know the truth", Netanyahu said in Hebrew in the video.

Netanyahu added many police recommendations go nowhere. The investigation is known in Israel as "Case 1,000", but until Wednesday, it was unclear how likely charges would be brought. The Prosecutor's Office said recently in the Knesset that at least half of the police recommendations amount to nothing.

"A large shadow was cast tonight over the police investigations and their recommendations related to Prime Minister Netanyahu".

Police are investigating Netanyahu over suspicions that he received expensive gifts, including pricey cigars, from wealthy supporters such as Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan and Australian billionaire James Packer.

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.

Israeli media Channel 2 TV claims a police document emerged indicating there's enough evidence to indict Netanyahu but that no decisions have been made.

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.

He said the police chief's comment was a freaky and false suggestion that had cast a great shadow on the investigation. It would be up to the attorney general to decide whether to put Netanyahu on trial. "I call on coalition members to stop the proposal to annex the West Bank that will be voted on next week in the Ministerial Committee for Legislation, the same week in which police recommendations will be published. Any sane person would look at these comments and ask how the police chief would be able to conduct an impartial investigation of the prime minister".

"We must not get to a situation where embroilment in the investigations is met with embroilment in a war", she said, suggesting that Netanyahu could initiate a military conflict in order to draw attention away from his legal troubles.
