Interior Minister Aryeh Deri faced a fourth round of police questioning Tuesday as part of an ongoing corruption investigation into a range of fraud charges against him. Deri is under suspicion of money laundering, fraud and breach of trust, theft by an authorized person, fraudulent registration, and tax offenses, according to police.
The minister’s wife, Yaffa Deri, was interrogated alongside her husband over suspicions of various financial crimes, including tax evasion and using money donated to her nonprofit organization to purchase real estate. She has joined her husband for two of the previous three rounds of questioning.
Both are being questioned under caution as criminal suspects. Read more at Times of Israel.
