New Delhi, Feb 14 (ANI): The Israeli police on Tuesday recommended that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu be indicted on charges of bribery, fraud, and breach of trust. The police said that there was enough evidence to prosecute the Prime Minister on allegations that he had accepted lavish gifts from wealthy businessmen and also tried to negotiate a corrupt deal with a newspaper publisher, reported The Telegraph. Netanyahu is charged with accepting bribes worth one million shekels. The Prime Minister repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, and in a defiant address on Tuesday night, said that he would not resign over baseless police recommendations.
