Israel’s Ministry of Justice to Probe Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is being investigated for two unspecified criminal matters, the country’s attorney-general said.

The probe was announced on Israel’s Channel 10 television on Wednesday.

A Justice Ministry spokeswoman said checks in the matter “are still ongoing and this is neither confirmation or denial of what has been alleged”.

“The attorney-general, the police and prosecutors are working in close cooperation and a public announcement will be made in due course about the investigation,” she said.

Reuters said there was no immediate response from Netanyahu’s office on the report.

Netanyahu has denied wrongdoing in the purchase of submarines from Germany, where media have reported a potential conflict of interest involving his lawyer.

The Channel 10 report said Attorney-General Avihai Mandelblit had authorized police to question Netanyahu under caution, and that a date for the interrogation would be set in the coming days.

It said the more serious of the two cases that Mandelblit had been examining had not yet leaked out to the public.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    On one hand, Netanyahu has always had a whiff of scandal trailing him since his early days in politics, on the other hand isn’t it always funny, how most who oppose the US aren’t long in power or for this world?

    Castro being a notable exception.

      Bibi brought this upon himself with his arrogance – I am all for it. How do you go to Congress and give a speech at the invitation of Republican Congressmen, surpassing the president?

    Netanyahu! You cannot bite the hand that feeds you and think you will get away with it! You of all people ought to know better. You got sucked in by Trumps tweets,you allowed someone who doesn’t understand the inner working of the US government and foreign policies to fake you out homie instead of using backdoor diplomatic channels to voice your dissatisfaction but instead chose tweeter.. When I saw Netanyahu tweet reply to Trump yesterday I just smiled sheepishly knowing that the US administration was going to check Netanyahu.. Just didn’t realize it would be this soon afterwards, lol.
