PM’s attorney says Netanyahu will show up to pre-indictment hearing, but is still hoping it will be further delayed

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s attorney announces that his client will attend his pre-indictment hearing in October.

However, Hebrew media reports that Netanyahu is still expected to submit a petition to the High Court of Justice in the coming months asking for an additional delay after the attorney general declined an identical request last week.

The prime minister’s lawyer Amit Hadad criticizes Mandelblit’s decision to reject their delay request, arguing that dozens of documents were missing from the docket that the AG’s office provided him to review ahead of the October 2 hearing.
