State’s Witness Arrested After Retracting Testimony in Israel’s Submarine Affair

In November, the police announced that it found sufficient evidence to charge Netanyahu’s lawyer, David Shimron, with facilitating bribery in the affair.

Shimron, who is also Netanyahu’s cousin, began representing Ganor in 2009. Police say Ganor used the family connection to Netanyahu to advance ThyssenKrupp’s interests in what became a deal worth nearly $2 billion for the company.
