“The trial began three years ago and, as things stand, the proceedings, including potential appeals, are seen as unlikely to end before 2028-2029.”

This is just stupid. What is the point if it is non-binding. May as well just negotiate.

> The report said, the judge could cancel the bribery charge against Netanyahu and convict him on fraud and breach of trust - a potential resolution reportedly considered when former attorney general Avichai Mandelblit held plea bargain contacts with Netanyahu's lawyers in late 2021 to early 2022.

> Even those who favor mediation, the report said, consider the chances of the sides agreeing to it, and it ending quickly and successfully, to be "Not high," especially given the bad blood and mistrust between the sides.

> According to unconfirmed reports of the plea deal negotiations, Mandelblit was demanding that any plea deal with Netanyahu include a clause of "Moral turpitude" - which would bar Netanyahu from public office for seven years.

"Non-binding mediation"? Kind of like "Mock Trial". Seems to favor one side.

may be a subtle subtext to this... let him off with a non-binding slap and he doesn't need to force through the judicial changes to get his get out of jail free card? that would be a significant de-escalation....

Yea, or a good and extremely generous compromise would be to just let him go into exile with his wife and Yair. He can then just retire and at least leave everyone alone. Everyone wins, kinda.
