Israeli police have recommended indictments for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, on bribery and other charges.
The recommended indictments are connected with a case the police have been investigating to determine if regulatory benefits were granted to the telecommunications firm Bezeq, in exchange for positive coverage of the prime minister.
Police say there is evidence to charge the couple with with bribery, fraud, and breach of trust.
“The police recommendations regarding me and my wife don’t surprise anyone,” Netanyahu said in a statement. “These recommendations were decided upon and leaked even before the investigation began.”
The attorney general will now decide whether the Netanyahus will be indicted.
Police had already recommended indicting the prime minister on corruption charges in two other cases.
Corruption allegations have also swirled around Sara Netanyahu in connection with her perceived extravagant lifestyle and abusive behavior.
