Police on Thursday began questioning Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for a second time this week over suspicions he received illegal gifts from businessmen.

Authorities previously questioned the premier under caution at his residence for more than three hours on Tuesday in connection with the ongoing investigation.

He is suspected of receiving improper gifts worth hundreds of thousands of shekels from businessmen in a manner that breached his duty of trust as a public servant.
