Gag order extended in Bezeq graft probe

The Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court grants an extension of a gag order in the Bezeq graft probe.

The gag order is granted for 45 days — the maximum allowed — suggesting investigators have further work to do in the probe, which is known as Case 4000.

The case involves suspicions that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu advanced regulation benefiting Bezeq owner Shaul Elovitch in exchange for positive coverage from Bezeq’s Walla news site.

Both have denied wrongdoing.
