Israel’s Attorney General’s Office has rejected a request by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to postpone his testimony in three investigations into alleged corruption and bribery charges until March 2025, leaving the order that the president testify no later than November 1.

Netanyahu’s lawyers had requested the postponement due to lack of time to prepare his defense in the midst of the Gaza war, but the prosecution has responded that the “public interest in this legal process” is more important than the reasons given by the prime minister.

“Further delays in this procedure could cause substantial damage to public opinion and the Prime Minister had made it clear that his role as a manager would not influence the conduct of this legal process,” the prosecution responded.

There are currently three cases involving Netanyahu. Case 1000 involves him and his wife, Sara, receiving gifts from businessmen in exchange for political favors.
