Friedman and Netanyahu
On Monday, Mr Netanyahu - along with his wife and son - were questioned by police as part of an investigation into one of the corruption cases.
Citing the ailment last week, he delayed a meeting with police investigating whether he gave preferential treatment to a telecommunications company in exchange for favorable coverage, according to the Jerusalem Post.
Shlomo Filber, the former director general of the Communications Ministry, and Nir Hefetz, a former spokesman of Netanyahu, have agreed to serve as the regime's witnesses in the case.
Israel's attorney general is now reviewing the police recommendations, a process that could take months, and will decide whether to indict Netanyahu on the charges.

Netanyahu's symptoms include high fever and coughing and are apparently due to complications of a streptococcal throat infection, a correspondent for the Israeli daily Haaretz reported.
"The prime minister is suffering from a high fever and is coughing", confirmed his spokesman.
The political survival of Netanyahu's four-term prime minister is greatly at risk over the corruption and bribery probes.
