JERUSALEM: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who faces three investigations over alleged corruption, was questioned again by police over a case involving Israel’s largest telecoms firm on Tuesday.

The authorities allege Net­­­anyahu awarded regulatory favours to Bezeq Tele­com Israel in return for favourable coverage of him and his wife on a news website ow­­n­ed by the company. Netan­yahu, Bezeq and its owner have all denied wrongdoing.

Netanyahu has been quest­­i­oned over the case before and police have yet to make a recommendation about charges.

In a brief statement that gave no details about the investigation, a police spo­kesman said Netanyahu was questioned for several hours at the prime minister’s residence in Jerusalem by the police anti-corruption unit.

A spokesman for Netan­yahu said “nothing new was presented to the prime minister today”.
