Germany postpones submarine deal due to corruption investigation
Netanyahu confidant David Shimron revealed as suspect detained in graft probe
Israel's "submarine affair" took a new turn when six suspects were brought in for police questioning as part of the investigation. Three of the suspects are central figures in the scandal, and some are very close associates of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
A multimillion dollar submarine deal with German shipbuilder ThyssenKrupp is the focus of a police investigation, which is probing possible wrongdoing involving Netanyahu's personal lawyer and German shipbuilder ThyssenKrupp's local representative.
One suspect brought in for questioning on Monday is a former Defense Ministry official who took part in the opinion given regarding the acquisition of the submarines, the second is a former military man-turned businessman who was closely involved in the deal and the third is another central figure in the affair. The three other suspects have family and work relations with the main three suspects.
