Police excoriate Netanyahu after court tirade

“There has never been a prime minister here who tried like this to goad and hurt the law enforcement in such an overt way,” Channel 12 quotes the unnamed source as saying. “Netanyahu’s baseless claims say more about him than about investigators and the prosecution.”

The source also defends police work thus far and says that if attorney general orders an investigation into a suspected questionable business deal “we’ll receive him respectfully, but, as with investigations in the past, won’t cut him any breaks.”

Netanyahu is alleged to have made millions by selling shares of a company that became a major supplier to ThyssenKrupp, the German shipbuilder accused of bribing officials close to Netanyahu for a tender to build military vessels for Israel, raising conflict of interest concerns.
