Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has faced harsh criticism and intense efforts by his detractors for quite some times, to remove him from power… and now they are looking to the police for support.
What exactly do they claim he has done? We have the answers here…
VIA| Israeli police on Monday questioned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about a pair of allegations related to possible corruption, FoxNews.com confirmed.
The investigation — which Netanyahu has called “baseless” — will address the suspicion that Netanyahu and his family received gifts from Israeli and foreign businessmen in breach of his role as a public servant.
“The national police unit questioned the PM Benjamin Netanyahu under caution on the suspicions of receiving benefits,” a statement from police said. “He was questioned for 3 hours at his residents. At this stage there is no further details to be given.”
According to Israeli channel 10, the two businessmen who are suspected of providing benefits to Netanyahu have already admitted their roles, and Netanyahu is now to be confronted with that testimony.
Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, have weathered several scandals over the years, including investigations into the misuse of state funds and an audit of the family’s spending on everything from laundry to ice cream. They have denied any wrongdoing.
