Corruption trial against Israeli prime minister Netanyahu to begin

Three years after the police have searched Netanyahu's residence for the first time, his trial is scheduled to begin on Sunday. The prime minister of Israel who's been sworn in for his fifth time in the last week is accused on charges of fraud, breach of trust and bribery. The trial had been postponed from March because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and marks the first time that a sitting prime minister will be tried in court. Netanyahu has repeatedly denied all allegations against him.
