Israeli police officials are in "unanimous agreement" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should be indicted on corruption charges for reportedly accepting bribes and receiving lavish gifts from wealthy benefactors, the Times of Israel reported Wednesday.

Netanyahu is embroiled in two investigations, known as Case 1,000 and Case 2,000. The first case centers on expensive gifts Netanyahu allegedly received from Israeli Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan and Australian casino mogul James Packer in exchange for helping Milchan obtain a U.S. Visa and Packer a residency permit in Israel.

Recommendations for an indictment will be sent to Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, who critics say is stalling corruption charges against Netanyahu as the investigations into the prime minister have continued for over a year.

Netanyahu has denied wrongdoing in both cases and posted a video on Facebook telling people to "not be nervous."

"The State of Israel is a state of law," Netanyahu said. "The law says that the one to determine whether there is evidence against the prime minister is the attorney general. and he consults with the state attorney. The state prosecutor recently said in the Knesset that about half of the police's recommendations end with nothing.

"So do not be nervous . . . I am sure that at the end of the day the competent legal bodies will come to one conclusion, to the simple truth: There is nothing," he added.
