Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu Indicted on Corruption Charges

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu Indicted on Corruption Charges.

The country's Attorney General, Avichai Mandelblit, says the charges include fraud, bribery and breach of trust.

Mandelblit previously said he was considering indicting Netanyahu back in February.

Legal experts say the prime minister is facing up to a decade in jail for bribery and three years for the other offenses.

.

The indictments come as Israel is on the cusp of holding elections for the third time in a year.

Netanyahu and political rival Benny Gantz have both failed to form a government.

Now that he has been indicted, Netanyahu's political future is uncertain.

The prime minister claims the indictment is a political vendetta.

It’s very disturbing what is going on here and how the police conducted this investigation.

This is a contaminated process, we need to investigate the investigators, they didn’t want the truth, they were after me personally, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, via statment.

It remains to be seen if Israel President Reuven Rivlin will let Netanyahu form a government should he win the next election
