Israeli Police Question Netanyahu in Corruption Investigation

Israeli police arrived at the home of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today for an initial round of questioning over allegations that the PM took lavish gifts from wealthy contacts in the private sector.

A large black screen was erected in front of the Prime Minister’s house today to shield Benjamin Netanyahu’s home from the gaze of onlookers and reporters this morning in apparent preparation for the arrival of Israeli police investigators. Although the police did not speak to journalists outside, the Israeli media says they are there to question Netanyahu in an ongoing investigation that accuses the PM of using his position to take bribes, illegal campaign donations and lavish gifts.

Israeli Media: Netanyahu Under Investigation for Bribery

Police are gearing up to launch a full-blown criminal investigation into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for bribery, according to Israeli media reports on Monday.

For the past nine months, Israeli police have been conducting a secret inquiry into criminal wrongdoing by Netanyahu, and now believe that they have enough information for a formal investigation, the Times of Israel reported.

It is alleged that the Prime Minister accepted bribes in the form of donations during his 2009 campaign.
