The second case involves the popular Israeli daily Yediot Ahronoth, well-known for being anti-Netanyahu. The Israeli premier reportedly tried to reach a deal with its owner, Arnon Mozes, to offer him more favorable coverage. This is a crime in Israel.
Other cases are piling up in Israeli courts, too – against Netanyahu’s wife and son, and his political ally David Bitan, who is believed to have collected bribes from businessmen to pay off a massive debt when he was serving as deputy mayor of Rishon LeZion, south of Tel Aviv.
Netanyahu’s wife, Sara, is believed to have misused public funds to pay for private chefs and electricians at the family home, in addition to hiring a nurse for her aging father. And their son, Yair, is being sued by an Israeli think-tank for writing a Facebook post that accused them of being “a radical, anti-Zionist organization funded by the Fund for Israel’s Destruction.”
