Police interview IDF officials on submarines Scandal

Ongoing police investigation into role in submarine scandal of David Shimron, PM’s attorney, reveals that IDF officers were involved; police gather officers’ testimony.


Police collected testimony Monday evening from senior IDF officials related to the submarine affair as part of the investigation police are conducting into the involvement of David Shimron, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s personal attorney.

Investigations have revealed that IDF officials were involved in all business proceedings with ThyssenKrupp and the Israel Police have requested their version of events.

Two days ago, legal advisor to the Minister of Defense, Ahaz Ben Ari, provided testimony that Shimron did not mention Netanyahu in their conversation.

A week and a half ago, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit ordered a police probe into the submarine affair. The Ministry of Justice announced that, “The Attorney General held further consultations with the participation of the state prosecutor, officials from the justice ministry and the head of investigations and intelligence at the Israel police.”

According to the announcement, the consultation took place following “new information received from the police, as well as further developments on the subject. In summing up the discussion, the attorney general decided to order a probe with the Israel Police in relation to various aspects associated with the case.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu has denied several times that he knew of the relationship between Shimron and the acquisition of the submarines.
