While police investigators question Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, separately and simultaneously tomorrow, the two arrested suspects in Case 4000 may be questioned as well and confronted with the answers the prime minister gives the investigators, Israel’s Hadashot news reported on Thursday evening.
The prime minister is expected to be questioned at his residence in Jerusalem while his wife will be questioned at the Lahav 433 offices. The investigators reportedly plan to present Netanyahu with evidence that shows his involvement in matters related to Bezeq and the Walla! news site continued despite the attorney general’s decision regarding the topic.
Case 4000, also known as the Bezeq Case, is the latest scandal in which Netanyahu’s name has come up. It involves suspicions that Shaul Elovitch, the controlling shareholder of Bezeq, directed the Walla! news site, which he owns, to cover Netanyahu and his family in a positive light in exchange for Netanyahu helping him financially by advancing policies that benefited him.
Tomorrow’s questioning will be Netanyahu’s eighth in recent months but the first involving Case 4000. However, the investigators are also expected to confront him with questions about Case 3000, the submarine scandal.
