Police did not find evidence to suggest bribery or other wrongdoing in their investigation of the November 2012 Labor party primaries, the national police headquarters stated on Thursday.

The LAHAV 433 investigative unit said that the investigation, which began in March after a complaint was issued to police, focused on claims that candidates in the primaries paid money to party members in order to gain their votes in the early primaries for the Labor party Knesset list.

Police said that over the course of the investigation they poured over party documents, financial records, and interrogated potential suspects only to find that "there does not appear to be evidence to suggest bribery in the elections among the candidates."

The head of the police special investigations unit will hand over the findings of the investigation to state prosecutors who will make the final decision whether to open a criminal case, police added.
