In an interview with journalist Lior Dayan (Hot), former Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon referred to the "Submarine Affair" and to the Prime Minister's involvement in it.

In the interview, Ya'alon harshly attacked the Prime Minister and his connections and the ties of David Shimron to the German shipyards. "Money may be involved here.

"The entire matter of the ship and German shipyard is dirty, and if there is no indictment, I will go public and tell everything," Ya'alon added.

The Prime Minister's Bureau said in response to Ya'alon's remarks, "Bogey's words are nonsense and emptiness, and his crude lies will soon become clear."

The Bureau's announcement noted that the State Attorney's Office announced that Netanyahu was not a suspect in the Submarine Affair and added, "It would be better for Bogey to look for other ways to pass the threshold."
