Israeli cops grill Bibi
A certain prime minister has a serious scandal on his hands…[su_center_b]
Israeli police have questioned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as part of an inquiry into corruption allegations.
Ahead of their arrival at his residence, Mr Netanyahu again denied any wrongdoing. …
Investigators questioned the PM at his central Jerusalem residence for about three hours, the Jerusalem Post newspaper says. …
Ynet quoted the leader of the Zionist Union, Isaac Herzog, as saying: “This isn’t a happy day. This is a hard day for the state of Israel. We are not gloating.”
Opponents of Mr Netanyahu have called for an investigation into his affairs following a series of scandals in recent months – none of which have resulted in charges.
Last month, an investigation was opened into the purchase of new submarines from Germany, after it was claimed that Mr Netanyahu’s lawyer represented the company during negotiations.
Earlier this year, convicted French fraudster Arnaud Mimran claimed he had donated hundreds of thousands of euros to Mr Netanyahu’s 2009 election campaign – something the prime minister denies.
He has also been accused of wasting public money, including $127,000 (£102,000) on a customised private bedroom on a single flight to the UK.
Similar allegations have followed the prime minister since his original term in office two decades ago.
He sounds quite Trump-esque.
