The cross-examination of opposition leader MK Yair Lapid (Yesh Atid) in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Case 1000, continued Tuesday morning in court.

Netanyahu's lawyer, attorney Amit Hadad, questioned Lapid on the matter of an agreement regarding conflicts of interest, which Lapid signed upon taking the office of Finance Minister.

Israel Hayom reported that in the agreement, Lapid failed to mention his friendship with Amnon Milchan, whose relationship with Netanyahu is one of the subjects of Case 1000.

Lapid, for his part, responded that Milchan "is not one of his five closest friends," Israel Hayom noted.

Hadad presented two responses by the Finance Ministry, which had been provided to media personality Erel Segal. Those official responses said that Lapid had not mentioned his connections with Milchan when signing the conflict of interest agreement. To this, Lapid said, "I would not rely on Erel Segal."

Hadad also noted that Lapid had given testimony to the police stating that he did not reject Milchan when Milchan turned to him. On this point, Lapid and Hadad had an argument.
