High Court rejects petitions for state inquiry into ‘Submarine Affair’

The High Court of Justice ruled on Thursday against three petitions that demanded the establishment of a state commission of inquiry into the so-called “Submarine Affair,” a massive corruption case that has ensnared a number of close associates of Benjamin Netnayahu, though not the former prime minister himself.

The justices noted that there was “improper and worrying conduct” in the case that deserves further investigation, but stopped short of ordering a government inquiry.

The submarine affair, also known as Case 3000, revolves around allegations of a massive bribery scheme in Israel’s multi-billion shekel purchase of naval vessels from German shipbuilder Thyssenkrupp.
