Police have handed the investigative findings to Jerusalem district prosecutors, who will decide how to proceed.

In early January, Netanyahu was questioned under caution by police for the second time in five days in connection with the ongoing criminal investigation into the Prime Minister’s Residence Affair.

The investigation deals with a number of separate affairs dealing with allegations of misuse of state funds in the management of the residence, for the personal gain of the Netanyahu family.
