Police to Question Netanyahu on Submarine Affair
Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit will instruct police to summon Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to testify in the Case 3,000 corruption affair, the Israel Broadcasting Corporation (Kan) reported Tuesday.
Also Tuesday, the justice ministry denied reports that the police had asked Mandelblit to summon the prime minister, a long-time advisor and confident, but that the latter refused to comply.
“No such request was presented to the attorney general’s office, to state prosecutors or to prosecuting attorneys focusing on the case. In this context, the reports are completely wrong.
“Regarding other details that have been published – we suggest caution when listening to reports like these during an investigation, which by their very nature are partial, often slanted and do not reflect reality,” the Broadcast Corporation said.
