Russian-born billionaire Arkadi Gaydamak was expected to be interrogated under caution by the National Fraud Squad on Monday for a second time, on suspicion of giving the prime minister's bureau chief, Shula Zaken, a significant discount on a season pass to soccer games. During a search of Zaken's house in connection to the Israel Tax Authority crackdown last month, police found tickets for box seats at Jerusalem's Teddy Stadium. Police suspect that Zaken acquired the tickets from Gaydamak, who owns the Betar Jerusalem soccer team, at less than the regular price. Gaydamak was questioned on Sunday over an allegedly forged letter concerning him.
