Israeli police have said today there is "sufficient evidence" to indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on criminal charges in two corruption cases.

According to a police report published earlier today, authorities found evidence of accepting bribes, fraud, and breach of trust.

Police stopped short of recommending that charges be brought against Netanyahu. That decision rests with the attorney general.

In a televised statement today, Netanyahu said that the allegations against him would come to nothing.

Netanyahu is a suspect in two separate criminal investigations, known as Case 1000 and Case 2000. The cases involve allegations of receiving bribes, fraud, and breach of trust, according to police.

In Case 1000, Netanyahu is suspected of having received gifts from businessmen overseas, including cigars for himself.

In Case 2000, police have investigated conversations Netanyahu had with the owner of one of Israel's leading newspapers, which is regularly critical of the Prime Minister.

Netanyahu has repeatedly proclaimed his innocence, insisting that investigators will find he did nothing wrong.‚Äč
