Hollywood Billionaire Arnon Milchan questioned on suspicion of bribing Prime Minister Netanyahu

Developments in 1000 case: Arnon Milchan was questioned last week on suspicion of bribing the prime minister. Milchan has so far provided two open testimonies. Last week the investigators arrived in London and the investigation became a warning that lasted several hours

Hollywood billionaire Arnon Milchan was questioned by Israel police last week in London regarding suspicion that he paid bribes to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli media reported on Tuesday.

Milchan previously testified that both Benjamin and his wife Sara Netanyahu demanded he gives them illicit gifts, such as expensive cigars and pink champagne. But what started as gifts between freinds, turned into a steady supply at the couple’s demand. Prime Minister and his wife would make specific demands, and even send him reminders to send supplies.

Following meetings held by the police, the investigators realized that they would be very difficult to formulate a recommendation for an indictment against the prime minister, who is suspected of receiving favors and bribes if the person who gave the gifts himself is not suspected of anything. When Netanyahus was questioned he told Israeli police the gifts cost significantly less than claimed and were unremarkable as they were given by a close friend of the family.

Last week, Milchan’s investigation was held in London, where the investigation has become a warning on suspicion of bribery.

Investigators are reportedly looking into whether Netanyahu may have benefit Milchan, who owns stocks in Israeli TV Channel 10.
