Serhat TUNAR -TDO- Israel has announced it will apply for immunity from Parliament over corruption allegations against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Hours before his 30-day deadline expired, Netanyahu said he would submit his application for immunity to the Israeli parliament.
On November 21, Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit decided to open 3 separate corruption files against Netanyahu. Last week, the Israeli Prime Minister said that immunity is one of the cornerstones of democracy.
Israeli experts say it is difficult for Netanyahu's application for immunity to be accepted in Parliament. Experts also claim that Netanyahu did this to buy time.
By law, the deadline for Netanyahu to apply for immunity to Parliament expired at midnight yesterday (Wednesday).
