On Saturday, it was cleared for publication that Benzi Lieberman, who is the Head of the Israel Land Authority, and former MK of the National Religious Party Nahum Langenthal were named as the two suspects that police questioned this week in a corruption probe involving the Israel Land Authority.

After being interrogated by Lahav 433 unit last Thursday on the suspicion of fraud and breach of trust, the Police confirmed both were placed under house arrest.  

The suspicions mainly revolve around decisions Benzi Lieberman made regarding a particular real estate company he had ties to and several projects the firm had been involved in.

Langenthal, now an attorney, is suspected of similar conflict of interest violations while aiding Lieberman.
