Israel's ambassador to Great Britain, Zvi Hefetz, was questioned Friday morning at the headquarters of the police's serious and international crimes unit in Petah Tikva on suspicion that he was involved in the Bank Hapoalim money laundering scandal, in which police froze $372 million deposited in Bank Hapoalim's branch 535 on Rehov Hayarkon in Tel Aviv.
Police suspected that the money, which belonged to 200 of the bank's international clients, was obtained illegally and had been knowingly laundered by bank employees.
Hefetz was last questioned on his suspected involvement in November 2005.
