Netanyahu grilled for sixth time in graft probe

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been questioned by Israeli police for the sixth time since being named as a suspect previous year amid allegations of corruption.

Last week, Netanyahu endured over four hours of questioning in the two cases, dubbed Case 1000 and Case 2000.

In a statement, the Israeli police said Netanyahu had been interrogated for "several hours" in his Jerusalem residence.

Police will be presenting Netanyahu with finding from their investigations of famed Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan, Milchan's aide Hadas Klein, and Netanyahu's former Chief of Staff Ari Harrow, who recently turned State's Witness against Netanyahu.

Israeli police sources believe that investigators have enough evidence to charge Netanyahu with bribery over his accepting the expensive gifts, Channel 10 reported Friday.

Netanyahu has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and called the accusations against him a witch hunt orchestrated by a hostile media.

Investigators arrived by vehicle in late afternoon to Netanyahu's official residence in Jerusalem where past interrogations have taken place, and disappeared behind security gates.

Mr. Milchan, a longtime friend of the Prime minister, has himself been interviewed in September.

The second case relates to allegations that Netanyahu struck a deal for more favorable media coverage with Arnon Mozes, publisher of popular Hebrew-language newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth.

Earlier this month, Netanyahu confidants Yitzhak Molcho and David Shimron, partners in a law firm and both relatives of the premier, were questioned by police as part of a probe into suspected corruption around the purchase of German submarines.
