Israel PM Netanyahu questioned again in corruption probe

Israeli police have questioned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for a second time as part of an inquiry into corruption allegations.

The five-hour questioning at his Jerusalem home followed a slightly shorter session on Monday. The PM is being investigated for allegedly accepting “improper gifts” worth thousands of dollars from businessmen, media say.

Mr Netanyahu has continually and strongly denied any wrongdoing. Police said Thursday’s questioning had also included a separate matter but gave no details and Mr Netanyahu’s office has not commented.

Ahead of the first questioning on Monday, Mr Netanyahu had restated he was innocent and warned the media and political rivals that they should “hold off partying”, adding: “Nothing will happen, because there is nothing.”(BBC,2017)
