Attorney Amit Becher: Netanyahu must decide this week on plea bargain
00:00 / 36:24
Ben Caspit speaks this week with veteran attorney Amit Becher about the possibility of former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signing a plea bargain in order to escape prison time. The chairman of the Tel Aviv District of the Israeli Bar Association argues that even though Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit leaves office at the end of the month, Netanyahu still has enough time to reach such a deal. "If Netanyahu agrees to the conditions proposed, the technical/legal part could be wrapped up quickly. It is not a complex agreement," he says. Having said that, he notes that in the broader sense, this could prove to be much more complicated. "You must take into account the personality of the defendant Netanyahu, as well the necessity to agree on very specific wordings in which the former premier pleads guilty to some of the charges," says Becher.
