Attorney General to Close ‘Bibi Tours’ Case

Another “Let’s get Bibi” case has bit the dust.

Attorney General Yehudah Weinstein has accepted the recommendations of the police and state prosecutors and will close the “Bibi Tours” case that raised suspicions that Netanyahu illegally pocketed money for trips when he a Knesset Member,

The case arose after a Channel 10 reporter claimed that an organization and a businessman each paid Netanyahu for the same trip made by him and his wife Sara, amounting to “double-billing” and with some of the money going into Netanyahu’s pocket.

He and wife also allegedly flew to London in 2006 on a trip that was paid for twice, once by the Knesset and once by Israel Bonds.

The exposé sparked a lengthy and costly investigation by the Comptroller, who acts as Israel’s ombudsman, of hundreds of requests for travel by Cabinet ministers and their deputies.

Netanyahu denied there was any double-billing and accused the media, most of which simply hate the man no matter what, of trying to harm him and his wife.

The investigators received satisfactory answers from Netanyahu concerning one of the trips, Globes reported.” They also concluded that if there were any questions of improper conduct in the second case, they did not justify opening a criminal probe.
