The Jerusalem District Court postpones the evidentiary stage of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s corruption trial until April 5.
The decision means the criminal proceedings will begin after the March 23 elections.
The court says hearings will be held three times a week, from Monday through Wednesday, from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
Netanyahu is charged with fraud and breach of trust in three cases, and bribery in one of them. He denies any wrongdoing.
