In primetime address, Netanyahu dismissed accusations of corruption

The Israeli prime minister said that he is “4,000 percent sure” that he is innocent, appearing to mock one of the probes against him, known as Case 4000.

 

 

 Billed ahead of time by his spokesperson as “something dramatic,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denied the series of allegations that have been leveled against him, with Israeli police recommending last month that the prime minister and his wife be indicted.

In a primetime address on Monday that ran several minutes long, Netanyahu said it would be “unjust” for him to be charged ahead of the April 9 elections.
