An Israeli police spokesman has told a court that Benjamin Netanyahu is under investigation for bribery, fraud and breach of trust in two cases. Netanyahu fired back suggesting this is a plot to oust him from power.
A response on behalf of the prime minister stated on Thursday: "We completely reject the unfounded claims made against the prime minister. The campaign to change the government is underway, but it is destined to fail, for a simple reason: there won't be anything because there was nothing."
The two cases mentioned in the police request are known as Case 1000, which involves Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan, who was asked to purchase luxury items for Netanyahu and his wife; and Case 2000, in which Netanyahu tried to concoct a deal with Arnon Mozes, the publisher of the mass-circulation daily Yedioth Ahronoth.
