Nir Hefetz, the former media advisor to Benjamin Netanyahu, told court on Tuesday that the former prime minister "tried robbing state funds for personal needs," claiming he witnessed such schemes "dozens of times."

While testifying on Case 1000, which accuses Netanyahu of accepting illegal gifts from billionaires in exchange for benefits, Hefetz told the Jerusalem District Court: "I witnessed many cases Benjamin Netanyahu knew were problematic, and I'm talking about a lot of cases."
