Israeli media say police have questioned another billionaire as part of a corruption probe involving Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Channel 2 TV says police grilled British businessman Poju Zabludowicz on Saturday about alleged presents he provided Netanyahu and his wife, Sara.

Whereas various Israeli newspapers, including Maariv and Yedioth Ahronoth, Zabludowicz admitted to presenting “gift” to Netanyahu during his term as economy minister.

The reports, however, pointed to the fact that Zabludowicz was questioned as a witness, not as a suspect.

The investigation, dubbed “File 1000,” reportedly concerns claims that Netanyahu improperly accepted lavish gifts from wealthy supporters, including Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan and Australian billionaire James Packer.

The Netanyahus are said to have received more than $100,000 worth of cigars and liquor from Milchan. Netanyahu denies any wrongdoing.
