WHERE DOES PM STAND IN SUBMARINES AFFAIR? – ANALYSIS

What we know about Netanyahu and Case 3000

Very little so far. Until a few weeks ago, the “Submarines Affair” was about top defense officials and top officials close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu skimming off the top of a deal for Israel to buy nuclear submarines from Germany. After actively keeping Netanyahu clear from being viewed as a suspect for more than two years, Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit opened an initial review 10 days ago into the prime minister’s conduct regarding the case.

If Netanyahu is connected at all to the submarines case, it started when he purchased 1.7% of the shares in NMDM in 2007 for around $600,000. NMDM was a supplier for the German company Thyssenkrupp, which later sold submarines to Israel and Egypt.
