Netanyahu questioned again over graft
TEL AVIV, August 17, 2018 (News Wires) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went through a new round of questioning on Friday over one of several graft cases that have threatened to topple him, media reports said.
Investigators arrived at the premier's residence in the morning to interview him over allegations of corruption involving local telecoms giant Bezeq and its largest shareholder, Shaul Elovitch, according to Israeli media reports.
Israeli police and Netanyahu's office do not confirm that such hearings have taken place until they are over.
It would be the 12th time Netanyahu has been questioned in various cases, either as a suspect or a witness.
In the Bezeq case, Netanyahu is accused of seek favourable coverage from another Elovitch company, the Walla news site, in exchange for government policies that could have benefited the mogul's interests to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.
After a previous round of questioning in July, Netanyahu's office said there was no such trade-off.
