The probe into a purportedly corrupt deal worth $2 billion to purchase submarines and naval vessels from German shipbuilder ThyssenKrupp, known as Case 3000, has involved top Israeli officials, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The prosecutor’s office in the German city of Bochum, which specialises in corruption cases, has initiated a preliminary investigation into the billion-dollar submarine deal with Israel, the business daily Handelsblatt reports citing industry circles. The investigation is said to have been triggered by an Israeli request for assistance to the German authorities.
