State prosecutors in Bochum confirmed to DW that they have started an investigation into possible bribery as part of a deal to sell three “Dolphin” class submarines and four corvette ships from German manufacturer ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems to the Israeli military. The deal was approved by the German government in July 2017.

Prosecutors said in an email that after “assessing [international] press reports,” an investigation into unknown persons had begun, but refused to offer any more details. German authorities had previously only been “observing” the case.

Israeli police, who have been investigating so-called “Case 3000” for more than two years, filed bribery-related charges against six people last November, including David Shimron, Netanyahu’s family lawyer who also represented ThyssenKrupp’s former agent in Israel, Michael Ganor. Netanyahu himself is not a suspect.
