Po­lice ques­tion Ne­tanyahu for fifth time

The Guardian Weekly - - World roundup -

7 Is­raeli po­lice ques­tioned Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu for a fifth time in re­la­tion to a series of cor­rup­tion in­ves­ti­ga­tions. De­tec­tives from the na­tional fraud and se­ri­ous crimes squad ques­tioned the prime min­is­ter for “sev­eral hours” at his of­fi­cial res­i­dence in Jerusalem.

The of­fi­cers were re­ported to be in­ter­ested in talk­ing to Ne­tanyahu about two on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions. In case 1,000, Ne­tanyahu and his fam­ily are sus­pected of ac­cept­ing ex­pen­sive gifts, al­legedly in re­turn for ad­vanc­ing the in­ter­ests of bene­fac­tors.

The sec­ond, case 2,000, con­cerns al­le­ga­tions that he im­prop­erly sought a deal to get more favourable cov­er­age from the Ye­dioth Ahronoth news­pa­per.
