Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit who revealed that much in a statement said he intends to charge Netanyahu who would be given a chance to defend himself before charges are filed in a hearing which will likely be after the April 9 election.
Reports say the long-awaited announcement marks the first time a sitting Israeli prime minister has been put on official notice of planned prosecution.
However, a confident Netanyahu responded in a televised address on Thursday saying the corruption charges against him will collapse “like a house of cards”.
He also added that he intends to continue as prime minister of Israel “for many more years”.
