Netanyahu says he’s not seeking to postpone his court hearing next week

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he won’t seek to postpone a court hearing on Monday in his corruption trial, which he is scheduled to attend.

“Delaying my trial is not on the agenda, regardless of whether the lockdown is extended,” he says at a press conference.

“This issue is absurd,” he says, adding that the matter has been decided.
