Two lawyers deemed to be very close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are set to return to the police interrogation room on Monday, following a full day of questioning on Sunday.

The two, Netanyahu's lawyer, Attorney David Shimron, and another very close advisor whose name is under a gag order, are being questioned regarding their alleged illicit involvement in the purchase of German-made submarines by Israel, a purchase deemed unnecessary by the military and which netted substantial sums for the go-betweens.

The two men were released after nearly 14 hours of questioning Sunday and were instructed not to leave the country.
