BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 P.M.) – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Tuesday in Jerusalem that he will stay in office amidst allegations from Israeli police that there is sufficient evidence to indict him for bribery and fraud.
“I will continue to lead the State of Israel as long as you, the citizens of Israel, elect me to lead you,” Netanyahu promised. The Israeli leader went on to say he was confident that “the truth will come to light”.
In the past year, Netanyahu has been questioned in two corruption probes, which he claims to be false accusations from his opponents.
The final decision on whether the Prime Minister will face charges will be made by the attorney general’s office.
