Netanyahu To Be Grilled By Police In Corruption Probes

Netanyahu To Be Grilled By Police In Corruption Probes”

A Reuters cameraman saw police investigators arrive by auto late in the day to Netanyahu's official residence, where previous interrogations have taken place. Unlike the other two cases, Netanyahu has not yet been interrogated as a suspect in Case 3000.

Case 1000 revolves around alleged illicit gifts given to Netanyahu and his family by billionaire benefactors, most notably hundreds of thousands of shekels' worth of cigars and champagne from the Israeli-born Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan. Dermer was questioned for intervening on behalf of Netanyahu and requesting a visa for Milchan from former United States Secretary of State John Kerry.

Netanyahu has not denied accepting gifts from Milchan but maintained the gifts were presents exchanged between friends and do not constitute bribery or a breach of trust.

According to Army Radio, Netanyahu is expected to be confronted during the investigation with testimony from Ari Harrow, his former aide who has turned state's witness.

A multimillion dollar submarine deal with German shipbuilder ThyssenKrupp is the focus of the police investigation probing possible wrongdoing involving Netanyahu's personal lawyer and German shipbuilder ThyssenKrupp's local representative.

Case 2000 accuses Netanyahu of attempting to buy favourable newspaper coverage with Arnon Mozes, the publisher of the mass-circulation daily Yedioth Ahronoth.

On Wednesday, amid legislative efforts critics say are tied to the Netanyahu investigation, lawmakers advanced a bill that would ban police from giving state prosecutors their opinion on lodging criminal charges against suspects at the conclusion of an investigation.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is being questioned under caution by police on Thursday for the fifth time in recent months at his official residence in Jerusalem over suspicions that he received illegal gifts. "The Israel Police, in accordance with the legal guidelines, only updates at the end of an investigation as required by these directives".
