Police chief: Netanyahu investigations in ‘final stages’

Israel Police Chief Roni Alsheich says both of the ongoing corruption investigations into Netanyahu are nearing completion.

“We will be finished soon,” Alsheich tells reporters at a swearing-in ceremony for the new fire chief. “There have been some constraints, but we are in the final stages.

“After we complete our obligations, we will update the public when we make our official recommendations,” he says.

Alsheich does not elaborate on the “constraints” the investigations have faced, but police in recent weeks have reportedly said their work has been repeatedly delayed by Netanyahu’s busy schedule and their difficulty reaching persons of interest.

His remarks came as police questioned Netanyahu for a fourth time.
