Police set to interrogate Netanyahu

Prime Minister Netanyahu is about to be grilled by police at his official Jerusalem residence over his involvement in two cases involving suspected corruption.

It will be his fourth such interrogation session.

One investigation, dubbed Case 1000, has the Lahav 433 anti-corruption unit probing whether Netanyahu’s accepting of expensive gifts from businessmen, and then taking actions on their behalf, amounts to an illegal conflict of interest.

The prime minister is also being investigated in Case 2000, which involves alleged negotiations with the publisher of the Yedioth Aharonoth daily, Arnon Mozes, and focuses on the prime minister’s supposed promise to advance legislation to hobble the rival Sheldon Adelson-controlled Israel Hayom paper in exchange for more favorable coverage from Yedioth.
