Isreali Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is being indicted on charges of bribe, fraud and breach of trust by the Isreali Justice Ministry.
This was made known by Israel’s Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit announced Thursday.
Netanyahu has previously denied any wrongdoing and has said he is the victim of a politically orchestrated “witch-hunt” by the media and the left.
It comes while Netanyahu is serving as Israel’s caretaker prime minister after he failed to form a government last month.
The caretaker prime minister still has the option to ask the Israeli Parliament for immunity. But this request would need to be approved by a special committee that has not been established due to ongoing political deadlock.
