Case 3000: Extended arrest of Ganor and Yosef Bar
Remember, Bar-Yosef is charged with felony bribery, receiving bribes and fraud and breach of trust for his part in the case, while Broshi is attributed to bribery, bribery, tax and money laundering offenses.
Between the two, close relations existed, and according to the letter of suspicion, he conveyed messages and information between Bar-Yosef and Ganor for the purpose of promoting the transactions, and also demanded and concealed with Bar-Yosef the bribe money from Ganor, and hid them.
Blue and White Chairman MK Benny Gantz responded to publications and wrote in his Twitter account: "The submarine affair is the most serious security corruption case in the history of the country. Earned NIS 16 million in the submarine and stock affair. "
Bar-Joseph's attorney, Attorney Jacques Chen, said: "We have received the summons for the hearing. Brigadier General (Retired) Bar-Yosef firmly rejects the suspicions against him. He never demanded and never received any benefit for actions related to his job. These were done solely for the benefit of the public interest and clean and professional considerations. Immaculate did not adhere to his actions. We are convinced that clarifying the suspicions before the competent authorities will lead to this conclusion. "
Avriel Bar-Yosef served as an officer in the Navy until 2003, and was released from the IDF by Brigadier General. From 2004-2009, he served as Director of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, and from 2015 to 2009 served as Deputy Head of the National Security Council (NSC). And in 2016, he was appointed head of the NSC, but within a short time his appointment was frozen and eventually canceled.
Shai Brosh served as an officer in the Navy until his release from the IDF in 2001 with the rank of brigadier, and has been a businessman since then.
