Las Vegas Sands (LVS - Get Report) CEO Sheldon Adelson was questioned by Israeli police in connection to an ongoing investigation into two separate alleged cases of abuse of power by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, sources told Reuters.
One of the charges accuses Netanyahu of negotiating a deal for positive press coverage with the owner of Israel's most popular newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth. Adelson, a Netanyahu supporter, owns Yedioth Ahronoth rival, Israel Hayom.
The second case Netanyahu is being investigated for involves businessmen giving gifts to the Prime Minister, breaching his role as a public servant.
