Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's trial will restart Monday morning in the Jerusalem District Court.

The trial was put on hold during the courts' recess during the holidays, and was not renewed immediately after the holidays due to the outbreak of the war with Hamas.

Monday's hearing will focus on Case 4000, with the judges hearing testimonies from police investigators, as well as from a Securities Authority investigator.

Case 4000 involves allegations that Netanyahu made promises of favorable regulatory changes to Bezeq owner Shaul Elovitch in exchange for favorable coverage of the prime minister and his family on Walla, Elovitch's news site.

"The most important thing right now is to restart Netanyahu's trial and busy the Prime Minister with outrageous testimonies and delusional trifles," Minister Dudi Amsalem said. "This is an unprecedented disgrace."
