Bibi: Police Recommendations

Against Me 'Like Swiss Cheese'


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out at police recommendations that he be charged with corruption, saying they have "holes like Swiss cheese."

Netanyahu made his statement after the recommendations, which were widely expected, were officially released on Tuesday.

"After reading the recommendations report, I can say it’s biased, extreme, has holes like Swiss cheese and holds no water," Netanyahu said.

The prime minister has long charged that the investigation into his conduct is politically motivated and a leftwing plot to topple his government.

He also pointed out that one of the main witnesses against him is his bitter political rival Yair Lapid.

"It emerges that based on that testimony, Lapid is a key witness. This is the same Lapid who vowed to topple me at any cost," Netanyahu said.
