Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s lawyer on Monday evening informed the attorney general that his client will attend a hearing on his three criminal cases set for October 2, after failing to convince Avichai Mandelblit to postpone it.

Netanyahu’s lawyer Amit Hadad said, “We will come to the hearing, but it would have been right to reconsider the date and delay it.”

“We believe there are significant arguments justifying postponing the [hearing] date,” Hadad added, and then complained of “dozens of missing documents” in the case files provided to him.

Monday was the last day by which Netanyahu could signal his intention to attend the hearing. Had he failed to do so, his right to a hearing would have been waived and Mandelblit would have moved to make a decision in his cases.

The attorney general could then have filed the pending indictment in the prime minister’s criminal probes within days or weeks.
