6 detained in submarine corruption case

6 detained in submarine corruption case”

The six people, who were questioned under caution on suspicion of bribery, fraud and tax offences, include public officials and private citizens, police spokeswoman Luba Simri said.

The investigation into the 2014 deal took off in November 2016 over allegations that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's personal lawyer David Shimron also had business ties with ThyssenKrupp's local representative.

Israeli Channel 10 reported past year that ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems' Israeli intermediary had retained Netanyahu's personal lawyer, David Shimron, to act on his behalf.

As a result of the investigation, the signing of the memorandum of understanding between Israel and Germany regarding the acquisition of the submarines was postponed for several months, and it has been agreed that should criminal offenses or corruption were found in connection with the submarines deal, it would be canceled.

According to a previous report in Israeli daily Haaretz, Moshe Ya'alon, Israel's former defense minister, told police Netanyahu helped ThyssenKrupp - the German conglomerate making deals with Israel to the tune of billions of dollars - circumvent the regular procurement process.

Shimron has denied any wrongdoing in the case. Netanyahu, who is not a suspect in the case, has also denied any wrongdoing.
