Israeli Police to Recommend Corruption Indictment of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Israeli police will recommend indicting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on corruption charges, the premier confirmed on Wednesday.

Netanyahu said he remained confident that he won’t be prosecuted despite the coming recommendation from the head of police, Roni Alsheich.
