Professor Eitan Sheshinsky reported to the police that he received death threats on Sunday after the committee he headed recommended to raise the government's take on gas and oil discoveries.

The government's take will rise from 33% to 52-62% after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu decided last week to adopt the committee's recommendations.

Police are investigating the threats.
