A former chief of staff to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has agreed to provide testimony on behalf of the state in two graft cases in which the Israeli leader has been questioned as a suspect, court papers showed on Friday.The decision by Ari Harow to turn state's witness as part of a plea bargain in his own, separate corruption case adds a new dimension to a long-running investigation involving Netanyahu. Even if indicted, Netanyahu would not be obliged by law to resign.Another former Netanyahu aide who worked with Harow said on Wednesday that his testimony could be a "bombshell" against the prime minister, given the extent of his knowledge.In addition to the cases in which Harow will testify, police are currently investigating Netanyahu's wife over her use of official funds. Netanyahu is not a suspect in that case.
