A source within the Attorney General’s office told Channel 20 in Israel that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will not be prosecuted for the case files against him known as 1000 and 2000.
The source said: “There are wide gaps between investigation details that were presented to the Attorney General and tangible proof. The materials are hollow and there is a wide gap between statements made and any proof found. A lot of the material is nothing more than hearsay, which cannot be brought before a court of law as evidence. Many things would require a lot of reinvestigation, and even then, I am not sure that it would allow for a legal case to be opened.”
The source continued to say that while there are still many documents that have not yet been shared with the public, even these do not provide enough of a base of evidence to press charges or bring the Prime Minister to trial. “The case requires additional investigation and will still take months before it is complete.”
