(Worthy News) - Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit on Sunday informed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s legal team that he had agreed to their request that a pre-indictment hearing in three graft cases against the premier be spread out over two weeks, instead of being held over two days this week.
Netanyahu’s lawyers were scheduled to meet with Mandelblit on October 2 and 3 for a long-awaited hearing at which they would try to convince the attorney general not to go ahead with plans to charge the prime minister in the three separate criminal cases.
Under the new arrangement, only arguments regarding Case 4000, the most serious of the corruption cases against Netanyahu, entailing suspicion of bribery offenses among others, will be held on Wednesday and Thursday. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
