Three former aides to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will likely face criminal charges on suspicion of intimidating a state witness in his corruption trial.

The State Prosecutors office announces that Yonatan Urich,  Yisrael Einhorn and Ofer Golan will face charges, pending a hearing.

The three are suspected of harassing state witness Shlomo Filber, a former Likud campaign manager and longtime confidant to Netanyahu. Filber is now a key witness for the prosecution in Netanyahu’s ongoing trial in three corruption cases.

The three, who were working for a Likud campaign at the time, are suspected of sending a van to Filber’s home with loudspeakers, blasting allegations that he had lied about the case.
