Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu has authorized his attorneys to move forward with a plea deal with Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit. In the negotiation meeting that took place last night at the home of one of Benjamin Netanyahu's lawyers, in addition to the lawyers, all of Netanyahu's family, his wife Sara and his sons Yair and Avner, as well as his associate Natan Eshel were also present.
According to a report on Kan News, the lawyers begged Netanyahu to accept the agreement, but the former prime minister made it clear that he would not pursue a deal at any cost. Netanyahu is currently interested in promoting the agreement but still hopes the deal can be improved from his point of view.
Netanyahu's family members still oppose the move, to varying degrees. At the conclusion of the meeting, it was decided to speed up the contacts with the Attorney General in order to make a decision in the coming days.
