Former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu asks for permission to be excused from the remainder of the testimony of Nir Hefetz, his former aide-turned-state’s witness, in his criminal trial.

The judges grant the request, and Netanyahu leaves the courtroom after his fourth appearance during his trial, in which he faces charges of bribery, fraud, and breach of trust.
