Israeli police has questioned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over his alleged dealings with the country’s largest telecommunication company. Israel Radio today said, Netanyahu’s wife and son would be questioned separately in the telecom investigation.
It was the second time the prime minister had been questioned. He is suspected of awarding regulatory favours to Bezeq Telecom Israel in return for favourable coverage on a news site the company’s owner controls. Netanyahu has denied any wrongdoing and says he is the victim of a witch hunt.
In the two other cases in which police have already recommended that Netanyahu be charged with bribery, the final decision about whether to prosecute rests with the Israeli Attorney General.
