Prosecutors and defense attorneys in the ongoing corruption trial of Prime Minister Benjamin have reportedly reached an agreement to shrink the list of witnesses who are slated to testify before court.

According to the Kan public broadcaster, more than 60 witnesses will be cut from the list, which is expected to lead to the prosection’s arguments wrapping up in a year, and Netanyahu himself taking the stand within 18 months. The trial has been ongoing for more than three years.

The report also indicates that the attorney general is expected to give up on purported plans to reach some sort of mediated plea deal in the case.
