Israeli police have evidence which they believe will prove that the Israeli prime minister's family received a bribe of $3 million from an Austrian billionaire, a police spokesman says.
Mickey Rosenfeld, the police spokesman told AFP on Tuesday, the evidence had been gathered in late December during a police raid of Martin Shlaff, an Austrian financer's family house in Israel.
Rosenfeld said: "On 22 December, 2005, the national police investigation unit searched Shlaff's house (in Israel) and confiscated documents, paperwork, phones and his computers.
The bribe is thought to be connected to a long-running corruption scandal which has plagued the family of Ariel Sharon over illegal campaign contributions during the 1999 elections.
The money is thought to be linked to an unresolved corruption scandal in which Sharon was suspected of receiving a $1.5 million loan from South African businessman Cyril Kern that was allegedly used to refund contributions to his 1999 leadership campaign after they were deemed irregular.
