In June, Netanyahu was questioned for the first time on the 'submarine affair', the reportedly corrupt deal worth $2 billion to purchase submarines and naval vessels from a German shipbuilder. Israeli Police stated Thursday that they had substantial evidence to accuse Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's lawyer and confidant, David Shimron, of mediating corruption, Haaretz reported. In addition, police stated that Netanyahu's former bureau chief, David Sharan, former navy chief Eliezer Marom, and two ex-navy generals should be charged following similar accusations linked to the 'submarine affair,' also known as Case 3000. However, police stressed that there was a lack of proof to charge another key Netanyahu attorney, Issac Molho. The 'submarine affair' is linked to an allegedly corrupt $2 billion deal to purchase submarines and other naval vessels from the German shipbuilder ThyssenKrupp.
