Israel's Netanyahu vows to remain in office after police recommend he is charged with corruption 'for accepting bribes from a Hollywood mogul and Australian billionaire James Packer'

Israel's prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to remain in office and today insisted his government is 'stable' after police recommended he should be indicted on bribery and breach of trust charges.

The recommendations came after Netanyahu allegedly accepted gifts from Hollywood mogul Arnon Milchan and Australian billionaire James Packer.

There were also suspicions that he offered to give preferential treatment to a newspaper publisher in exchange for favourable coverage.

And the fresh development will deal an embarrassing blow to the embattled prime minister and is likely to fuel calls for him to resign.

Following the announcement late on Tuesday, Netanyahu angrily rejected the accusations, which included accepting nearly $300,000 dollars in gifts from the two billionaires.
