Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be questioned a third time by police in connection with both aspects of the ongoing investigation, Israel Radio reported Tuesday morning.

The Attorney General, Avichai Mandelblit, authorized the investigation of three additional businesspeople on Monday, in connection to the first of the investigations - regarding the exchange of gifts to the prime minister in return for political favors.Arnon “Noni” Mozes, publisher of Yediot Aharonot, is reportedly at the center of the second investigation against Netanyahu.

According to a report on Channel 2, Mozes and Netanyahu attempted to negotiate sympathetic coverage of the prime minister in return for the weakening of Yediot competitor Israel Hayom.

Police reportedly obtained an audio recording of Netanyahu negotiating mutual benefits with Mozes when they searched the cellphone and computer of Ari Harow, the prime minister’s former chief of staff, who was questioned in July.
