Beschuldigingen van corruptie voor Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu

December 4, 2018 -- Israëlische politie heeft een aanklacht aanbevolen tegen Benjamin Netanyahu wegens omkoping. Dit komt bovenop een stapel juridische problemen die het vooruitzicht op herverkiezing in 2019 overschaduwt.

Netanyahu’s fate now lies in the hands of his attorney general, who will decide in the coming months whether the prime minister should stand trial on a host of corruption allegations that could play a central role in next year’s election campaign.

The latest allegations follow a lengthy investigation into a case involving Netanyahu’s relationship with Shaul Elovitch, the controlling shareholder of Israel’s telecom giant Bezeq. Netanyahu is suspected of granting regulatory favours to Bezeq in return for positive press coverage of him and his wife Sara on the company’s popular news site Walla.

Police said they believed there was sufficient evidence to charge Netanyahu and his wife with accepting bribes, fraud and breach of trust. They also recommended charges be brought against Elovitch, members of his family and members of his Bezeq management team.

Police have already recommended indicting Netanyahu on corruption charges in two other cases. One involves accepting gifts from billionaire friends, and the second revolves around alleged offers of advantageous legislation for a major newspaper in return for favourable coverage.

The prime minister has denied any wrongdoing.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
