Israeli Police Push For Prime Minister Netanyahu's Indictment On Corruption Charges

The second case, Case 2000, also alleges "bribery, fraud and breach of trust by the prime minister" relating to his dealings with Arnon Mozes, the publisher of the biggest-selling Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth.

Following the police recommendations, Israel's Attorney General will decide whether to indict Netanyahu.

Responding generally to the police recommendations, Lapid said: "Even if the letter of the law doesn't obligate the prime minister to resign, in a proper country a person accused of such serious allegations... can not continue to serve as prime minister".

Police were expected to make a formal announcement later Tuesday.

When Lapid said he had, but that he had reservations over the legislation, Netanyahu responded that he thought it was "a good law", the TV report said.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said any prime minister who has been charged should not be obliged to resign.

Over the past few months, thousands of Israelis have been rallying outside the house of Israeli attorney general Avichai Mandelblit in the city of Petah Tikva every week to call for Netanyahu's prosecution.

He said in the past most police investigations are, as he puts it; 'thrown in the trash'. He accused police of being on a witch hunt against him and vowed to remain in office. They said he acted "against public interests".

The police statement said that Mr Netanyahu, after receiving gifts, pushed for the Milchan Law, which would have ensured that Israelis who return to live in Israel from overseas were exempt from paying taxes for 10 years.

"The findings of the investigation revealed that the relationship between the prime minister and Mr. Milchan was a bribery relationship that amounted to a criminal offense and not an innocent relationship between friends", the police spokesman said. No one, not I, not anyone else, has plans to go to an election.

"Regarding the issue of applying sovereignty, I can tell you that I have for some time been speaking with the Americans about it", Netanyahu told lawmakers from his Likud party, according to comments relayed by a spokesman. "They have fired dozens of arrows at him in the hope that one of them will hit it, and after they have turned over every stone, in every corner of the world, the police did everything in order to reach their goal", Amsalem said.

Recordings recently emerged of his wife, Sara, screaming at an aide, while separate recordings caught his eldest son, Yair, on a drunken night out at a series of Tel Aviv strip clubs while travelling around in a taxpayer-funded government auto with a government-funded bodyguard.

"I wish for the prime minister that he end his term quickly and in a seemly manner", Olmert, also known for his taste for fine cigars, was quoted as saying.

Netanyahu will address the public in a public broadcast at 8:45 p.m., Tel Aviv time.

Labor Party Chairman Avi Gabbay said that "the Netanyahu era is over, either at the ballot box or through investigations".
