Israeli Police spokeswomen, Luba Al-Samri, issued a statement on Monday, a copy of which was obtained by the Anadolu Agency, saying that “Prime Minister Netanyahu had been questioned under caution on suspicion of receiving improper gifts and favours.”
Netanyahu denied the accusations directed at him during the questioning.
Netanyahu is suspected of receiving money and gifts amounting to hundreds of thousands of shekels from Israeli and foreign businessmen.
