Criminal Probe of Benjamin Netanyahu Launched

Israel’s attorney general’s office has reportedly launched a criminal probe into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over allegations of bribery and fraud. Netanyahu’s government has described the accusations as false and part of an attempt to undermine his legitimacy. The reported investigation into Netanyahu stems from his foreign trips during his time as Israel’s foreign minister, in addition to an allegation that he improperly accepted 1 million euros.
