Netanyahu questioned anew in telecom corruption case
Mar 27, 2018, 03:13
Israeli police questioned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday over his alleged dealings with the country's largest telecommunication company, Bezeq Telecom Israel.
Video footage showed a police auto pulling into the driveway of the prime minister's official residence in Jerusalem.
Investigators will question Netanyahu's wife and son later in the same case. This is the Netanyahu's tenth interrogation since 2017 and second in 2018.
The other, Case 2000, involves an alleged plot to win positive coverage in Israel's biggest newspaper by offering to take measures to curtail the circulation of a rival daily.
The reports said he could for the first time have faced questions over information provided by Nir Hefetz, a longtime Netanyahu aide who has turned state witness.
In 2017, police also interrogated Netanyahu over the so-called Case 1000 and Case 2000.
On February 13, police recommended Netanyahu be indicted in two cases, though the attorney general has yet to decide whether to do so.
Hefetz, a former spokesman for the Netanyahu family, agreed to turn state witness earlier this month, becoming the third former Netanyahu associate to cut such a deal in recent months.
He is suspected of awarding regulatory favors to the telecom firm in return for favorable coverage on a news site the company's owner controls.
Netanyahu dismissed the investigations as "delusional, fabricated claims" that are part of an "orchestrated campaign" against him and vowed to "continue to lead the state of Israel responsibly, discreetly and with great dedication".
Police said the questioning lasted for a "number of hours", without elaborating.
