Report: Netanyahu on Verge of Plea Deal in Corruption Case

-

The long saga of former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared to be careening toward its end, with reports that Netanyahu is in secret talks for a plea deal.

The Times of Israel reports that the attorney general has agreed to the terms of a plea, and the ball is now in Netanyahu’s court.

The sticking point is reportedly an admission of “moral turpitude” by Netanyahu and a sentence to community service. Such an admission would bar Netanyahu from politics for seven years.

As Netanyahu is 72, this could amount to a lifetime ban.
