Police have opened an investigation into suspicions that a jacuzzi was installed at the Caesarea home of Benjamin Netanyahu for NIS 50,000 ($15,000) at the expense of the state, Channel 12 reports.

The installation was allegedly done under the cover of a security upgrade for the property.

The report says the Netanyahus themselves are not suspected of wrongdoing at this point, though it is not clear how.
