Israeli police issue third recommendation for indictment of Prime Minister Netanyahu

Israel police have for the third time this year recommended that the country’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu be indicted on charges including bribery and fraud.

Netanyahu must now wait for the decision of the attorney general, whom he appointed, on whether he will be indicted on all three charges.

In the latest case, police accuse the prime minister of trading regulatory favours for favourable media coverage.
