During the second day of the corruption trial for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday, former Walla CEO Ilan Yeshua told the court about a dramatic meeting in December 2016 when Shaul and Iris Elovitch called him to their house on an emergency basis. The Elovitches took his cellphone and their cellphones and left them outside the house, he said. Next, the Elovitches told him they must coordinate their stories about the interference with Walla’s coverage, he added. Shaul Elovitch said they, Yeshua and Netanyahu would claim it was done to keep Walla from being too far-left politically and due to the close friendship between Netanyahu and Elovitch, Yeshua said. Further, Elovitch insisted that he destroy all text messages relating to the media scheme, he said. Yeshua said he refused, adding that he would delete the messages later after he had saved some personal messages. In addition, Elovitch told Yeshua he should destroy his cellphone, he said.
