The expectation, in this case, is that even though the Attorney General has been closely monitoring the investigations of Netanyahu, it could take up to a year for the matter to come to a conclusion. The protestors carried placards reading signs saying "crooks go home" and 'crime minister.' A poll published on Wednesday showed nearly half of Israel's electorate believe the police rather than Netanyahu.

Netanyahu is not going anywhere anytime soon - and he is willing to burn down the prime minister's residence on Balfour Street before he voluntarily turns over the keys. When Tata visited Tel Aviv on November 1 a year ago, he met a team of Israeli investigators where he was made aware of these developments.

Lapid, who also called on Netanyahu to step down, was finance minister at the time one of the allegations took place.

Mr. Netanyahu angrily rejected the accusations, which included accepting almost $300,000 in gifts from two billionaires. According to the report, the State Attorney slammed the police for putting it in an impossible situation by "blowing up the balloon of their recommendations to its fullest, and now any stepping back from them will seem as a collapse".

In Case 2000, Netanyahu is suspected of striking a deal with media mogul Arnon (Noni) Mozes whereby the premier would weaken the Sheldon Adelson-backed daily Israel Hayom in return for more favorable coverage in Mozes' Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper.

When Netanyahu first made his move to take over the Likud party 25 years ago, the party establishment largely dismissed him.

Former Prime Minister Ehud Barak, a bitter rival of Netanyahu, called on him to suspend himself and for the coalition to appoint a replacement on Wednesday morning.

Following Tuesday's announcement by police, Milchan's lawyer said the police recommendation "ignored basic facts", including that Netanyahu and Milchan have been friends since the 2000s, when Netanyahu was not in government.

Netanyahu in turn allegedly lobbied U.S. officials on Milchan's behalf regarding a visa matter and helped promote his business interests in Israel.

Commenting on the news item, Tata's office said the reports were "grossly incorrect" in its references about Tata.

Both Deripaska and Prikhodko, who rarely makes comments to the media, denied the allegations. A court in Ust-Labinsk, a town in southern Russian Federation where Mr.

Milchan, the producer of films including "Fight Club", "Gone Girl" and "The Revenant", should face bribery charges, the police said.

The White House later denied claims that the Trump administration is holding talks with Israeli senior officials regarding the "Sovereignty Law".

Forty-eight percent of those surveyed said Netanyahu should quit and 40% said he should not. Hundreds of world leaders attend the Munich Security Conference each year, and Israeli ministers and other senior officials have as a result delivered speeches there in recent years.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, fighting for his political life after being accused of taking bribes from billionaire supporters, is no stranger to scandal.
