He was suspected of granting illegal loans to former Bank Hapoalim chairman Dan Dankner.Dankner was ousted from his position for alleged breaches of corporate governance. The case is already under investigation. He was questioned in connection with receiving millions of shekels in loans allegedly granted improperly when he was chairman.Globes contributed to this report.
