Ganor claims Shimron was due millions in sub deal

State witness Miki Ganor claims that David Shimron was due to receive a commission worth $10 million for his role in getting the ThyssenKrupp submarine deal pushed through.

State witness Miki Ganor testified that David Shimron was supposed to receive a commission of approximately $10 million in order to advance the decision to purchase submarines from ThyssenKrupp, according to reports from Channel 2 and Channel 10.



For the past week, Ganor has been staying at a police training facility in Beit Shemesh giving testimony about suspects already arrested in connection with the case.

His testimony has been largely focused on two main suspects, David Shimron, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's personal attorney, and former Commander of the Navy, Eliezer Marom.


According to Ganor, Marom was also expected to receive a multi-million shekel commission for his aid in getting the deal passed. Ganor also alleged that during Marom's tenure as head of the Navy, he maintained good relations with the German consortium and even acted to have them replace their representative in Israel.


Ganor also claims that following his retirement from the navy, Marom agreed to consultancy positions worth millions of shekels.


Attorneys for David Shimron responded to reports of Ganor's testimony to police, saying, "The claims raised by Ganor are so far from reality that it is inconceivable that the state has given them to the police. During all the period in which Mr. Shimron represented Miki Ganor, he acted as a lawyer and all his activities were lawful."
