The trial of former prime minister and current candidate Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to restart on Tuesday after an approximate six-week summer recess, smack in the middle of election season. The trial opened in May 2000, with witnesses first called in April 2021. To date, the trial has focused primarily on Case 4000, the Bezeq-Walla Affair. However, this past summer, the prosecution started to dig deeper into Case 1000, the Illegal Gifts Affair. When the trial resumes, it will be the tail-end of the cross-examination of Hadas Klein, an aide to tycoon billionaire Arnon Milchan and a key prosecution witness against Netanyahu.
