Police question Netanyahu for fifth time
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.
