Netanyahu Says He Won't Resign If Summoned For Corruption Hearing
About a month ago, Israeli police said they had enough evidence to indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a third time for corruption.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday he will not resign if he's summoned to a pre-indictment hearing prior to April elections.
He made that statement nearly a month after Israeli police said they have enough evidence to indict him a third time over bribery and corruption. Investigators say Netanyahu gave millions of dollars in regulatory benefits to an Israeli telecommunications firm. In exchange, they say, a controlling shareholder gave Netanyahu favorable news coverage on an online news site.
Israel's attorney general has yet to indict the prime minister, but Netanyahu's wife was charged with fraud earlier this year. Israeli police arrested members of Netanyahu's inner circle earlier this year, as well. Netanyahu has denied any wrongdoing.
Israel's parliament decided to dissolve last week, so the country's elections have been bumped up to April 9.
