Interior Minister Deri’s brother questioned for third straight day in corruption probe

Interior Minister Arye Deri’s brother, attorney Shlomo “Momo” Deri, was questioned by police under caution for the third straight day on Thursday, as part of the corruption probe against the minister and his associates.

Shlomo’s name was cleared for publication late Wednesday night; after he requested the media ban be lifted, saying he has nothing to hide. Since Tuesday the press has been restricted to saying only that a “very close associate” of Deri has been questioned under caution, even as the identity of the suspect in question was known to Deri’s inner circle.
