Netanyahu calls charges ‘baseless’ after police unearth corruption evidence


Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has hit back after Police said he should be charged over alleged bribery cases.

He called the allegations baseless and said he is certain the truth would be revealed.

Mr Netanyahu gave a defiant rebuttal of the allegations in a statement broadcast on Israeli television Tuesday evening.

At an event in Tel Aviv on Wednesday, he repeated his insistence that he would not be resigning. Despite criticism from a key member of his coalition, he said, his government is stable.

A police statement said, there is enough evidence to indict him for bribery, fraud and breach of trust in two separate cases.

The 68-year-old leader is in his second stint as prime minister, and has served in the role for a total of 12 years.
