Netanyahu files Another Lawsuit Over Allegations
JPost – Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara filed a NIS 3.5 million libel suite against Channel 10 and two of its reporters, Raviv Druker and Mickey Rosenthal on Tuesday, following last week’s broadcast of allegations that Netanyahu had billed two organizations for flights the couple had taken in 2006.
This is the third libel suite filed by Netanyahu against news organizations over alleged libels committed in their reporting of the “Bibi Tours” scandal.
In a press conference in Jerusalem, Netanyahu’s lawyer David Shimron outlined the lawsuit, pointing to 15 allegations made by the reporters that Netanyahu’s lawyers said were false. The allegations that Shimron spoke of were all broadcast on channel 10 investigative news program Hamakor, during two segments stretching over three weeks.
