The Israel Police have completed its investigation into Case 3000، also known as the Submarines Affair، and has gathered sufficient evidence against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s lawyer، confidant and relative David Shimron and former commander of the Israeli Navy Eliezer Marom to recommend indictments against them on counts of bribery، among other alleged crimes، as the Jerusalem Post said.
The police will recommend to the State Prosecutor’s Office that six suspects should be prosecuted: Shimron; Marom; Avriel Bar-Yosef، former deputy head of the National Security Council; Brig. Gen. (res.) Shai Brosh; Former minister Modi Zandberg; and David Sharan، former chief of staff of the Prime Minister’s Office.
The police noted that there had not been sufficient evidence of offenses by attorney Netanyahu’s trusted legal adviser Yitzhak Molcho، who will escape indictment.
In Case 3000، public officials، business and senior executives، either directly or through business and private companies، are suspected of having used their connections to profit from Israel's acquisition of submarines and vessels from the German corporation Thyssen Krupp، alongside the promotion of additional business interests.
Miki Ganor، Thyssen Krupp’s sales representative in Israel، turned state’s evidence، allegedly perpetrated fraud alongside the other suspects in a deal for Israel to buy nuclear submarines from the German company.
According to the terms of the agreement، Ganor will be tried on the suspicions of tax offenses and will serve a 12 month prison sentence and be fined 10 million shekels in exchange his cooperation with the state and providing further information about his case.
Opposition leaders responded to the police recommendations by calling for Netanyahu to resign.
