Will Israel's deal to buy German submarines torpedo Benjamin Netanyahu?
The Times of Israel reports that investigators have discovered how 20%, nine million dollars out of an overall 45 billion dollar commission, was to be steered to Bibi's lawyer.
Miki Ganor, a former agent for the German submarine company ThyssenKryupp, said David Shimron — who is also Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s cousin and personal attorney — was to receive 20 percent of his own commission of $45 million, Channel 2 and Channel 10 reported.
The suspects were questioned under caution on suspicion of fraud, bribery, tax evasion and money laundering, the Israel Police and the Tax Authority said in a joint statement.
Netanyahu is not a suspect in the case. However, police are planning to summon him to testify on what he knows about the issue.
