Elovitch, Netanyahu to strike back in trial as defense begins cross-examination

Walla and Bezeq owner Shaul Elovitch and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are expected to strike back hard on Tuesday in the public corruption trial before the Jerusalem District Court.

The trial now crosses into a new phase with the cross-examination of former Walla CEO Ilan Yeshua.
If the first seven hearings of the trial in April were the prosecution’s chance to shine in showing off its claims that Netanyahu and Elovitch engaged in a media bribery scheme, the next 10-20 hearings will be the defense team’s chance to strike back.
Elovitch lawyer Jacques Chen will cross-examine Yeshua on Tuesday, Wednesday and next week.
