Police believe there is sufficient evidence to merit an indictment of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for corruption, according to a document presented to Police Chief Roni Alsheikh on Wednesday.

Alsheikh held a meeting on Wednesday with the investigating teams in two corruption cases involving Netanyahu, known as Case 1,000 and Case 2,000. In the first case, which revolves around expensive gifts Netanyahu allegedly received from several close acquaintances, police are determined to recommend an indictment.

In a video posted on his Facebook page, Netanyahu told his supporters, "I want to ease your worries: Nothing will happen, because I know the truth. Don't hold your breath. There will be recommendations, there will be signs saying 'Bibi is guilty until proven innocent,' … but I'm certain that all the legal experts will eventually reach the same conclusion: There is nothing."
