The prosecution in the ongoing corruption trial of former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu requests an extension in handing over the results of a search of emails and phone messages of former Walla CEO Ilan Yeshua, a key witness in the case.

Prosecutors ask for the deadline to be pushed off from tomorrow until next Sunday. The hearings in the trial are slated to begin again next Monday, but are expected to be pushed off if the prosecution’s request is accepted.
