Police suspect Hollywood mogul was go-between for PM, newspaper chief — report

Police investigators reportedly have evidence that Hollywood mogul Arnon Milchan, suspected of giving bribes to Benjamin Netanyahu in one case, also acted as a middleman in a suspected illegal deal discussed by the prime minister and Yedioth Ahronoth publisher Arnon Mozes in a separate case.

The Tel Aviv district prosecution believes that Netanyahu “systematically” demanded benefits worth about NIS 1 million ($282,000) from Milchan in so-called Case 1000, public broadcaster Kan reported last month.

According to a report Tuesday by Hadashot TV news, police have evidence that Milchan was also involved in Case 2000, which involves a suspected illicit quid-pro-quo deal between Netanyahu and Mozes that would have seen the prime minister hobble a rival daily, the Sheldon Adelson-backed Israel Hayom, in exchange for more favorable coverage from Yedioth.
