No surprise: police lack enough evidence to recommend indicting Netanyahu

It turns out, according to a current TV report, that the Israeli police don't have enough evidence, if at all, to recommend an indictment against Netanyahu:
The police recommendations that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should be indicted on charges of corruption are not backed up by enough evidence, sources in the state prosecution reportedly said according to a shocking TV report broadcast Wednesday.

The report, from Hadashot news and translated by the Times of Israel, said that according to sources, “Not everything asserted in the recommendations is backed up by the evidence” and the police “inflated the balloon to the very limit.” The report also said the prosecution clashed repeatedly with the police over the case, with the police saying it could be wrapped up in eight months and continuing beyond that would be a waste of time.

However, in light of the report, the Justice Ministry issued a rare statement on Thursday, emphasizing that the Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit and the state prosecution “are working in full coordination and excellent cooperation with the Israel Police.”

The prosecution, however, seems to believe that any indictments, if filed, would not happen before late 2019, the report said. A senior prosecutor will need to go through the entire file before making a recommendation and then hand it over to State Prosecutor Shani Nitzan to do the same. After that, Mandelblit will make a decision and then it will likely take several more months before Netanyahu receives a hearing date.

The sources also said that, as is, the case file isn’t complete and should never have been handed over to the prosecution. Instead, more investigative work needs to be carried out.

“It is not clear to us why there was this mad rush to publish the recommendations yesterday,” the prosecution sources were quoted as saying. The case file, they asserted, was “emphatically not ready for transfer at this time” and “further investigations will certainly be required.”
Wrong. NO investigations will be required, and definitely not if they have no intention of taking the same measures against left-wing politicians. What they should do now is close the case and stop wasting taxpayers' money on pre-determined witch-hunts. This has got to come to an end.
