Bayit Yehudi MK Nissan Slomiansky, who is suspected of voter fraud, was questioned by police for six hours on Thursday.

Police suspects that Slomiansky, who received 18,601 votes in the party's primaries which landed him in the no.3 spot on Bayit Yehudi's Knesset list, paid large sums to vote contractors for these votes.

Tapes of the vote contractors explaining how Slomiansky bribed them were submitted to police by party head Naftali Bennett, who hired private investigator Nisim Garameh to check whether Slomiansky was using illegal methods against him and his allies.
