Former Ynet Editor Eran Tiefenbrunn gave police testimony Thursday morning as part of Case 2000, the ongoing criminal police investigation against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regarding an alleged agreement the premier reportedly forged with Yedioth Aharonot publisher Arnon (Noni) Mozes to pass a law that would force Yedioth's main competitor, free daily publication Yisrael Hayaom, to start charging money from its readers.

Such a law, that was reportedly discussed between the two in a series of secret meetings that took place in 2014, would have signifcantly weakened Yisrael Hayaom, that otherwise cuts into the revenues of Yedioth.

In return, Mozes allegedly promised the prime minister better coverage in Yedioth.
