Likud MK Miri Regev says she supports freezing the trial of her party’s leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, who is charged with fraud, breach of trust, and bribery, amid Israel’s election season.

“I think this whole case is designed to prevent Netanyahu from becoming prime minister,” Regev tells the Walla news site.

“If it were up to me, the trial should be stopped,” she adds.
