Former Netanyahu spokesman signs state’s witness deal in corruption probe
JERUSALEM – Reuters
The reports said Nir Hefetz, a suspect in a case involving alleged regulatory favors granted to Israel’s biggest communications company, had agreed to give evidence for the prosecution.
A lawyer for Hefetz could not immediately be reached for comment. A police spokesman did not answer his telephone.
Netanyahu, who was due to meet U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington later on March 5, has denied any wrongdoing and says he is the victim of a witch hunt.
