Police announced on Wednesday they would not be using the testimony of Australian businessman James Packer in their probe into corruption allegations involving Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. They are still expected to indict Netanyahu by next month.

The decision was reportedly made after several attempts to contact Packer failed due to the fact that he spends most of his time onboard his yacht.


Police stated they do not need Packer's testimony and that they have over 90 testimonies that "paint a clear picture."


The Prime Minister's Office said in a statement, "What a surprise. After months of countless leaks claiming that police was inclined to indict the PM, it is indeed unimaginable that they would admit the simple truth - that they have nothing."
