Police Resume Interview of Netanyahu in Corruption Probe

YERUSHALAYIM (Reuters) -

Israeli police officers on Sunday questioned Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for the sixth time in a corruption probe.

Police investigators arrived by car in late afternoon to Netanyahu’s official residence in Yerushalayim where past interrogations have taken place, and disappeared behind security gates.

Police and Netanyahu’s office declined to comment to Reuters on their visit, but Israeli media, without citing sources, widely reported he was being questioned again and said the interview session would last several hours.

No charges have been brought against Netanyahu, who has denied wrongdoing.

Police said earlier this month that a top Netanyahu confidant had been questioned as part of a different investigation into a $2-billion submarine deal with Germany.
