The Times of Israel reports: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara will reportedly both be interrogated in the Bezeq corruption case on Friday, a day before the prime minister embarks on a week-long diplomatic trip to the United States.

The two will be questioned simultaneously but separately at the prime minister’s official residence, Hadashot TV reported Wednesday, adding that investigators could present identical materials to both, including recordings gathered during the probe.

The prime minister will be questioned under caution in the case, marking him as a possible suspect, the report said. He is also expected to testify in a separate probe, known as Case 3000, in which he has not been named a suspect, it added. The case involves suspected corruption in the multi-billion-shekel purchase of submarines and other naval vessels and from a German shipbuilder.
