Report: Mossad chief bought expensive cigars for PM

Channel 12 news reports that Hadas Klein, a former assistant to Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan, testified that current Mossad chief Yossi Cohen also said he bought Netanyahu expensive cigars and was not reimbursed.

According to the report , Klein told investigators that Cohen, who was formerly national security adviser under Netanyahu, said he spent NIS 1,800 ($500) on the cigars, and was unhappy that the prime minister did not intend to pay him back.  He said it was the first and last time he would buy them.

One of the three corruption cases against Netanyahu involves Milchan and others buying expensive gifts for Netanyahu and his family, including cigars and champagne.

A spokesperson for Netanyahu says Klein’s testimony is a lie. Cohen also denies the report to Channel 12.
