Netanyahu’s lawyer faces bribery rap
despite wielding no practical power. Charles defended his activism as heir to the throne. “If it’s meddling to worry about the inner cities as I did 40 years ago, then I’m proud of it.” JERUSALEM: Israeli police are recommending that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s trusted personal attorney be indicted in a conflict-of-interest case involving a $2 billion (R28bn) purchase of German submarines.
Police said yesterday they have sufficient evidence to charge David Shimron with bribery and money laundering. Shimron, who is also Netanyahu’s cousin, represented German manufacturer Thyssenkrupp. Police also want a former cabinet minister, a former navy chief and former Netanyahu chief of staff indicted.
