Supreme Court orders state to disclose more evidence in Netanyahu case

The Supreme Court orders the state to hand over additional evidence to the defense attorneys of Shaul and Iris Elovitch.

The top court partially accepts their appeal.

Elovitch and his wife face bribery charges in the so-called Case 4000, over which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is also on trial.

Netanyahu faces charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust in Case 4000, which involves suspicions that Netanyahu granted regulatory favors benefitting Elovitch, the controlling shareholder of Bezeq telecoms, in exchange for positive coverage of the prime minister and his family from the Bezeq-owned Walla news site.
