Netanyahu denies intention to amend immunity law

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday denied that he had sought support for amending the immunity law for Israeli MKs, Arab48 reported.

Netanyahu said in a live Facebook video from a coffee shop near his residence that “no one is changing the law, it doesn’t need to be changed, and I won’t need it at all.”

He added: “It isn’t necessary at all because there has never been anything and there won’t be anything,” referring to corruption cases in which he has been embroiled.

The Times of Israel reported that, in the wake of the Knesset elections in April, the Likud “was conditioning membership in the coalition on support for a bill that would make it easier for him [Netanyahu] to retain immunity from prosecution.”
