Will Netanyahu be convicted by 2022?

Question

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been on trial in the Jerusalem District Court since May 2020 for bribery, fraud and breach of trust. Netanyahu has been indicted in three separate cases: Case 1000 accuses him of receiving gifts in exchange for favors, Case 2000 accuses him of offering to promote the circulation of a newspaper in exchange for favorable coverage, and Case 4000 accuses him of helping a shareholder in a telecom company with regulatory issues in exchange for positive coverage. The evidentiary stage of the trial is set to begin in February 2021, though this may be delayed.

Will Netanyahu be convicted by the end of 2021?

This will resolve on the basis of an official court statement or otherwise credible media reporting announcing that Netanyahu has been convicted on at least one charge. Conviction on any charge unrelated to this trial would also count for positive resolution.
