Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was for the first time questioned by the police in a corruption case today.

The case involves the country’s largest telecommunications company Bezeq.

Along with two other corruption cases, in which the Prime Minister is suspected of bribery, the probes pose a serious threat to the four-term Prime Minister’s political survival.

Netanyahu denies any wrongdoing in all the cases, calling the allegations against him a “witch hunt”.

Police allege that the owners of Bezeq Israel Telecom provided favorable coverage of Netanyahu and his wife on a news website they controlled in return for favors from communications regulators.

Netanyahu, who has been a dominant political figure for a generation in Israel, plans to seek a fifth term in a national election due in late 2019.
