Within the past few days, Israeli Tourism Minister Yariv Levin gave a statement to the Israel Police regarding the affair surrounding Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Yedioth Ahronoth publisher Arnon (Noni) Mozes. Yedioth Ahronoth is the Israeli newspaper that owns and operates Ynetnews.

As reported earlier this week by JOL, it is suspected that Mozes and Netanyahu plotted to harm the circulation of Yedioth Ahronoth’s bigget rival, Israel Hayom, in exchange for positive coverage of Netanyahu. During his statement, Levin was asked if Netanyahu consulted with him in 2014 while he served under one of two positions – Coalition Head and then the Knesset Head - concerning the possibility to promote a law that would limit distribution of Israel Hayom.
