Attorney General: No criminal probe of Netanyahu in submarine affair

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will not face a police investigation into the circumstances of Israel’s controversial submarine deal with the German firm ThyssenKrupp, Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit announced Sunday in a meeting with State Attorney Shai Nitzan and top Justice Ministry officials.

Mandelblit and Nitzan agreed in the meeting to continue looking into the deal and whether Netanyahu’s lawyer David Shimron violated written commitments to prevent conflicts of interest by representing Miki Ganor, ThyssenKrupp’s representative in Israel.
