Israel Police is recommending the indictment of Avriel Bar-Yosef on charges of bribery and fraud in connection with Tzemach Committee, which deals with the country's natural gas interests.

Bar-Yosef is also a suspect in Case 3000, which was also dubbed the “submarines affair,” a police corruption investigation into Israel’s purchase of German-made naval vessels.

Retired Brig.-Gen. Bar-Yosef, a former deputy head of the National Security Council who played an important role in formulating an opinion in favor of acquiring the submarines, is suspected of fraud, breach of trust, money laundering, bribery, and conspiracy to commit a crime.
