According to the statement, Shabtai supports an investigation headed by a judge, pointing out that the police “has nothing to hide from the public.”

Shabtai’s early return reflects the seriousness of the allegations, local media said.

Police denied the allegations and said no evidence of illegal activity had been uncovered.
