Yesterday (Saturday), a senior-level official stated that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was unable to refute the suspicions against him during last week’s interrogation: “If there won’t be a significant change, the cases will be concluded in a month.”
According to the official, Netanyahu will be questioned twice more in the cases in which he is suspected of bribery. Law enforcement authorities stated that the prime minister wasn’t surprised by any of the questions. According to the police, the next time he will be questioned will only be in 10 days, in order to process the collected material.
Although the police wanted to question Netanyahu for 3 consecutive days, Israel’s Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit didn’t approve the matter. Before Thursday, Netanyahu’s most recent interrogation was in March. Over the past seven months, significant progress has been made in the two cases.
