Ex-Minister Eliezer Sandberg Named As Suspect In Widening Submarines Probe

A former minister and associate of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was named Monday as a suspect in the ongoing and ever-expanding corruption investigation into the multi-million-dollar purchase of naval vessels from Germany.

Eliezer (Moodi) Sandberg, who served short stints as minister of science and technology and minister of national infrastructure in 2003 and 2004, was questioned at the police’s anti-corruption unit Lahav 433 in Lod on Monday morning before being formally arrested on suspicion of fraud, breach of trust, and conspiring to commit a crime.

His identity, initially withheld by a gag order, was cleared for publication by the Rishon Lezion Magistrate’s Court during his remand hearing on Monday evening.

The court ordered Sandberg to remain in police custody until Wednesday afternoon.
