This evening Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the investigation on case files 1000 and 2000 concerning presents he received from Israeli and international businessmen and his alleged contacts with Yedioth Ahronot publisher Arnon (Noni Mozes. Yedioth Ahronoth is the Israeli newspaper that owns and operates Ynetnews.

Apparently, Mozes suggested that Netanyahu promote a law that would charge the free newspaper Israel Hayom a fee. In return, Netanyahu would receive positive media coverage in Yedioth Ahronoth. “There wasn’t anything because there isn’t anything,” Netanyahu repeated the same statement he has claimed throughout the entire corruption scandal, implying that there is no evidence against him.

“I’m not allowed to reveal information, but I can say, now that I’m aware of all of the facts: there won’t be anything because there isn’t anything. I thank my friends for their support. It touches my heart. I appreciate it.”
