Prime Minister Netanyhu was questioning under caution over suspicions that he accepted illicit benefits from various businessmen.



Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was questioned under caution Thursday evening at the official Prime Minister’s Residence in Jerusalem, for the second time this week.

Netanyahu questioned about two different cases. A police statement from the evening said the interrogation focused on a second undisclosed case as well. Police also said they had questioned an additional suspect in the investigation,  but said no further details could be given due to fears the investigation would be obstructed.

The minor case involving suspicions that PM and his family received gifts and other benefits worth hundreds of thousands of shekels from businessmen.

Haaretz revealed that Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan is allegedly one of the main figures involved in the case. Milchen allegedly gifted with hundreds of thousands of shekels worth of cigars to Netanyahu over the last seven to eight years.

The other witness was Jewish American businessman Ron Lauder, Netanyahu’s longtime friend.

Netanyahu has insisted that nothing will be found.
