Israel's fraud squad on Thursday questioned Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Yona Metzger on suspicion of bribery, theft, breach of trust and money laundering, a police statement said.
Metzger's questioning at the national fraud unit headquarters in Lod, south of Tel Aviv, comes after months of covert investigations involving three other suspects, according to police.
On Thursday, police "searched the homes and offices of the suspects, including those of Rabbi Metzger," the statement said. "Documents, computers and other materials were seized."
