Netanyahu embroiled in three corruption scandals

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has become embroiled in yet another scandal. The Likud leader was questioned yesterday by police in connection with an investigation into alleged corruption relating to Israel’s $2 billion purchase of submarines from Germany.

The Financial Times reported that Netanyahu was grilled for “several hours” at his official residence in Jerusalem. While Israel’s premier is not thought to be a suspect at the moment, the questioning by police over such long hours is bound to raise suspicions given that he is already under investigation over several cases of corruption.

Yesterday’s interrogation focused on a deal to buy three German submarines in 2016. The local representative for the German company, Miki Ganor, allegedly bribed Israeli officials to secure the deal. According to the FT Ganor signed an agreement last year to turn state’s witness.
