Former police adviser: Netanyahu indictments will be 'earth-shattering'
Police recommendations on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s corruption cases are expected to be announced in the coming weeks, and they will be “earth-shattering,” according to Lior Chorev, a former external adviser to the Israel Police.
Speaking at a conference in Eilat last weekend, he said once the recommendations to indict Netanyahu are announced, the Knesset will call to hold early elections – possibly as soon as next May.
Chorev said the recommendations will bear “a lot of information that we didn’t know – and it will cause an earthquake here.”
“When they [the recommendations] will be announced, they will have information such as the specific charges and a complete list of the people involved,” he said. “Netanyahu is not running a campaign for his innocence but a campaign to keep the coalition intact. It is a political campaign, not a legal one, and so far he is succeeding. He is keeping his coalition in one piece despite very complicated investigations.”
