Since the beginning of the month, several senior officials were arrested and interrogated—among them Netanyahu’s confidant and personal lawyer David Shimron, former Navy commander Maj. Gen. (res.) Eliezer Marom and former Israeli National Security Council (NSC) senior member Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Avriel Bar-Yosef.
According to suspicions, deals for the purchase of vessels and submarines included large sums of money illegally transferred to private pockets as bribes.
Shimron has already been released from house arrest and took off for a private vacation abroad. Marom’s detention ended Saturday night, and he was also released without restrictions. Ganor’s right-hand man, attorney Ronen Shemer, was released to two weeks of house arrest.
