Israel court sets next Netanyahu hearing for April 5

The Jerusalem District Court announced that it would start hearing witnesses in the corruption trial of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on April 5, after a general election.

Hearings will be held three times a week, from Monday through Wednesday.

The judges considered that there was a defect in the behavior of the Israeli attorney general, Abihai Mendelbeit, when he gave his consent to investigate the cases, yet they decided that the charges could not be canceled.

Two weeks ago, the session resumed in Netanyahu's trial in the corridors of the Jerusalem District Court, during which he presented Netanyahu's response to the indictments filed against him. Netanyahu himself arrived in the courtroom, but he left after half an hour, and the rest of the accused involved in the files attended the session.
