Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s defense team on Monday told the Permits Committee in the Comptroller’s Office that it was withdrawing his request to receive funding for his legal defense from his cousin, US businessman Nathan Milikowsky.

The committee was set to rule on whether Netanyahu could receive $2 million from Milikowsky.

Netanyahu said he would instead appeal for funding from Spencer Partrich, and was considering requesting money from another donor instead of Milikowsky.

The defense team also announced that it was refusing the preliminary conditions for a meeting offered by the committee, which included a declaration of assets as well as the full details of the relationship between Netanyahu and Partrich.

Netanyahu has unsuccessfully sought permission from ‘Israeli’ authorities for Milikowsky to fund his legal defense in the three corruption cases the Zionist prime minister is facing.
