Benjamin Netanyahu said he was a victim of "witch hunt" on the left.

Israel's lawyer can launch Benjamin Netanyahu PM against corruption charges.

Avichai Mandelblit reported that he informed Netanyahu's lawyers that he would be bribing, fraudulent and distrustful of three cases until the final trial.

The prime minister allegedly accepted gifts from wealthy businessmen and sought dedicated discounts to get better press coverage.

Netanyahu denied the infringement.

He said he was a victim of left-handed "witch hunting", to aim for a general election on April 9th.

The Prime Minister will have the opportunity to start the charges at the final hearing, which is likely to be held after the elections.

If his arguments are rejected, it is the first time in Israel's history that a sitting prime minister has been held criminally responsible.

Opposition parties said that Mr. Netanyahu had no way to continue as prime minister.

Mr Mandelblit said that the Supreme Court would decide whether to resign.
