Interior Minister Aryeh Deri (Shas) and his wife Yafa arrived at the offices of the Lahav 433 police special investigation unit Monday morning for questioning in connection with allegations of corruption.
Deri, who was convicted in 1999 of bribery and fraud for crimes committed while serving as Interior Minister more than two decades ago, served 22 months in prison and was released in 2002. He returned to the Knesset in 2013 and led the Shas party in the 2015 elections.
Authorities questioned Deri and his wife separately Monday morning, after Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit green-lighted the interrogations.
14 people have already been arrested in connection with the investigation into corruption. Read more ARUTZ SHEVA.
