Over 30 government officials detained under corruption charges

Police detained over 30 high-ranking officials from an unnamed political party for questioning on Wednesday into allegations that they used tens of millions of shekels worth of public money from charities and gave it to those close to them politically.
Those brought in for questioning include a member of Knesset who is also a deputy minister, along with a cadre of regional heads, a Knesset director general, former ministers, heads of public corporations, union leaders and political activists.
Lahav 433, the elite anti-fraud police unit, has been investigating the case undercover for the past year and went public with the investigations on Wednesday, when the detentions were made.
