August 4, 2015 19:10

An electrician who worked for the Netanyahus at the Prime Minister’s official residence was questioned under caution by police on Tuesday and was released by custody with the stipulation that he not contact any other suspects in the investigation.

Avi Fahima had worked as the electrician at the residence during time when they ran up exorbitant electricity costs. He was later disqualified from working at the residence but continued to work for them under the guise of being employed by a different contractor.

In July, Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein ordered a full criminal investigation into the residence, including cases that have come to be known as Bottlegate, Furnituregate, and Electricangate.
