The Israel Police on Thursday closed a probe into UN Ambassador Danny Danon, citing insufficient evidence of alleged corruption, following an investigation of claims that first emerged in a November 2017 television exposé.
Danon was investigated on suspicion of widespread political corruption to further his personal career in the years prior to his appointment to the UN post. But the probe did not uncover sufficient evidence to press charges, police said in a statement.
Danon has denied any wrongdoing.
The Hadashot TV report claimed Danon took control of a department of the World Zionist Organization intended to promote Zionism, and appointed cronies and their relatives to highly salaried positions, paid from public funds, in exchange for their support in Likud primary elections.
