A look at the legal trouble facing Israel’s Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will attempt to head off a corruption indictment at a series of pre-trial hearings that begin, in which he will try to persuade Israel’s attorney-general not to press charges. Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit announced in February that he intends to file criminal charges against Netanyahu in investigations listed as cases 4000, 1000 and 2000, pending the outcome of the hearings. Netanyahu could face fraud and breach of trust charges in all three cases, and bribery charges in case 4000. Netanyahu says he is the victim of a politically orchestrated “witch-hunt” by the media and the left to oust him from office.
