Today (Thursday), an Israeli court extended the remand of the 2 main suspects in the submarine affair by 5 days. The suspects are former Deputy Head of the National Security Council Avriel Bar-Yosef and businessman Mickey Ganor.

“Most of the material in this affair is unfamiliar to the media,” stated Judge Einat Ron. “There have been many developments in the investigation of Bar-Yosef and of other suspects as well.”

“Mr. Ganor didn’t bribe anybody,” Ganor’s attorney stated in the hearing to extend his remand. “He received his job as the representative of the German submarine manufacturer (ThyssenKrupp) in Israel without any assistance and so he didn’t need to pay anyone for it.”

Ganor was questioned under agreement until the late hours of the night and his attorney stated that is unjust to extract any admissions of guilt from him when he was so tired and distracted.
