‘Israeli’ Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shortened his trip to Moscow in light of an anticipated decision by the Attorney General on whether to indict him on corruption charges.

‘Israeli’ Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit is expected to announce his decision on a number of corruption investigations against Netanyahu in the near future.

According to reports, Mandelblit is likely to order Bibi’s indictment in Case 4000, in which police suspect that he granted regulatory benefits to telecommunications giant Bezeq in exchange for positive news coverage by the Walla news website, which is owned by Bezeq’s controlling shareholder.

He is also likely to be indicted in “Case 1000” for accepting around $280,000 worth of luxury gifts from a number of wealthy benefactors - including ‘Israeli’ entertainment mogul Arnon Milchan - in exchange for favorable government treatment.

There is less certainty regarding “Case 2,000”, which revolves around an arrangement with Yedioth Ahronoth publisher Arnon Mozes to limit circulation of the newspaper's main rival in exchange for more favorable coverage.
