Closest Netanyahu Aide Grilled in Sub Affair

Media identified Yitzchak Molcho as the second prominent lawyer to be grilled this week on the case.

The Israel Police detained David Shimron, Netanyahu's personal lawyer and another senior lawyer as part of "submarines affair" which is known as 'Case 3000, ' reported the Jerusalem Post.

Netanyahu is not a suspect in the case, but the investigation has engulfed his closest associates.

Shimron, who is also Netanyahu's cousin, represented the German firm involved and is suspected of trading his influence in return for a hefty cut of the deal.

Yitzhak Molcho, Netanyahu's diplomatic envoy, and David Shimron, Netanyahu's cousin and his family lawyer, were questioned in the offices of Lahav 433, Israel's Federal Bureau of Investigation. He is also a relative of Netanyahu and a business partner of Shimron. Most notably, he served as an envoy during the failed 2013-2014 Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

However, the announcement came a day before the state was set to provide a response to a High Court of Justice petition calling on Molcho to suspend himself over the conflict of interest charges.

"As I said at this extraordinary dinner, in which I thought Theresa May gave a tremendous speech, I think that our histories are intertwined, the history of Britain and Israel, and the Jewish community, from Chaim Weizmann and others, has been intertwined in the history of Zionism", Netanyahu said.

The petition argued Molcho, even if he wasn't a suspect in the case, couldn't continue as an envoy on worldwide affairs given that his legal partner was profiting from deals made by the Israeli government.

He is a suspect in two other criminal investigations involving corruption and breach of trust.
