Netanyahu trial: The hearings in the 4000 case continue in the Jerusalem District Court, with Avi Berger, former director general of the Ministry of Communications, testifying today (Tuesday). Berger is the fifth witness in the trial and the first witness to testify on the issue of regulation. Shaul Elowitz.

The plaintiff in the case, attorney Yehudit Tirosh, asked Berger about the economic damage to Bezeq: “The reform is based on Bezeq’s infrastructure. How much did it bother you what will happen to Bezeq as a result of the infrastructure change? After all, the Ministry of Communications needs Bezeq to implement the reform.” Berger replied: “The reform is built on Bezeq and also on Hot. The assessment was that there would be harm to Bezeq but it will continue to make a profit. I look back – and it makes a profit.”

Berger added that “Bezeq was against the reform and claimed that it violated the right to property, illegal.” He said, “Bezeq sent a lot of letters – dozens a year, check it out – requests for meetings, pressure on me, the minister, a general atmosphere of opposition.”

Berger added that he had received an implicit threat from Shaul Elowitz, the former controlling shareholder of Bezeq, if he promoted reform at Bezeq: “They threatened me, hinted that I would not find a job if I did not advance the reform,” he said.
