Corruption: Pressure mounts on Israeli Prime Minister

Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel's PM

Israeli media have reported the existence of an audiotape that is increasing pressure on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is facing an inquiry into corruption allegations.

The tape purports to carry a conversation with a newspaper owner in which they discuss actions that would be mutually beneficial.

Mr Netanyahu was questioned by police last week in two different cases.

On Sunday, he repeated that “nothing’s going to come” out of the inquiry.

The details of the conversation on the audiotape were carried in a report on channel 2 television and the Haaretz newspaper.

Channel 2 and Haaretz allege that on the tape Mr Netanyahu offers Mr Mozes a deal under which the circulation of the competitor daily, Israel Hayom, would be limited in return for more favourable coverage of the Prime Minister in Yedioth Ahronot.
