Netanyahu dismisses flood of allegations as ‘complete chaos’

Netanyahu rejects the latest corruption allegations against him, calling the recent flood of media reports on suspected wrongdoing “complete chaos.”

“What has been happening in the last two days is simply complete chaos. A scandal. [They] are bringing two imaginary and false claims as part of the campaign of persecution against me and my family that has been going on for years,” Netanyahu says in a video statement.

Addressing Case 4000, he says every decision regarding Bezeq, Israel’s largest telecommunications company, was approved by professional committees and subject to judicial oversight. “There is no wild west here,” he says.

Netanyahu also denies any involvement in his former spokesman Nir Hefetz’s offer to a judge that she would be appointed attorney general if she halted an investigation involving Sara Netanyahu.
