Prosecution Witness in Netanyahu Trial Killed in Plane Crash

Esti and Haim Garon, a married couple, were killed in the crash off Greek island of Samos. Haim Garon served as the deputy Communications Ministry director

Two people were killed on Monday when a light aircraft crashed into the sea close to the Greek island of Samos, Greek authorities said.

Apr 5, 2021: An Israeli court is calling its first witnesses today as the corruption trial of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu resumes. Netanyahu has appeared in court, where he faces multiple corruption charges including bribery, and fraud. He could be jailed if found guilty – but the trial is expected to last for years. Israeli politics are in chaos after an inconclusive election last month. Political parties are meeting with the president today to decide who will be tasked with forming a new government.

The two were identified as Esti and Haim Garon, the latter of whom served as the deputy director of the Communications Ministry and was a prosecution witness in Netanyahu’s trial. 

The small private aircraft, that was flying from Israel to the Greek island with two persons on board, crashed close to the island’s airport.

“We recovered two bodies from the spot,” a coast guard official told Reuters without providing further details.

“The aircraft crashed about a mile south from the airport,” a second official said.
