The Times of Israel reports: Police are reportedly making efforts to again interrogate Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the Bezeq corruption probe, known as Case 4000, and to take his testimony in another case involving alleged graft in multi-billion-shekel naval deals.

The prime minister is expected to be asked to first give a testimony in the submarine affair, dubbed Case 3000, and then be interrogated in the Bezeq investigation, Hadashot TV reported Thursday. A date has not yet been set, and discussions between the police and the Prime Minister’s Office are ongoing.

In Case 4000, Netanyahu is alleged to have provided regulatory benefits to Israel’s largest telephone company, Bezeq, in exchange for Bezeq’s chief shareholder, Shaul Elovitch, giving Netanyahu and his family positive coverage on the Walla news site, which Elovitch owns.
