’Israeli’ Police Question Bibi, Wife over 3rd Corruption Case
"Israeli" police were questioning Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife on Friday as part of an investigation into a corruption case involving the "Israel's" telecom giant, casting a shadow on Netanyahu's trip to Washington next week.
In this respect, "Israeli" Channel 10 TV showed footage of police entering Netanyahu's residence. Reports said Netanyahu's wife, Sara, was being questioned at another location.
In further details, two Netanyahu confidants were arrested last month on suspicion of promoting regulation worth hundreds of millions of dollars to the Bezeq telecom company. In return, Bezeq's news site, Walla, allegedly provided positive Netanyahu coverage.
It is the first time that Netanyahu, who also held the communications portfolio until last year, is being questioned over the affair, known as Case 4,000.
The development comes ahead of Netanyahu's visit to Washington where he is to meet with US President Donald Trump and speak before the pro-"Israel" lobby AIPAC next week.
Police recommended indicting Netanyahu on corruption charges in two other cases.
Netanyahu is accused of accepting nearly $300,000 in lavish gifts from the Hollywood mogul Arnon Milchan and the Australian billionaire James Packer. In return, police say Netanyahu operated on Milchan's behalf on US visa matters, legislated a tax break and connected him with an Indian businessman.
