Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may be on a diplomatic visit to Africa, but that did not stop him from responding to reports of police investigations against him.

On Monday, Israel’s Channel 2 News reported that the investigation was centered on funds Netanyahu illegally received from foreign business people during his current tenure as premier which began in 2009.

“Every time I go for a historic visit abroad, we hear about investigations,” he told the news channel. “It’s nonsense.”

According to Channel 2, the reported investigation has already begun in Israel is being called for implementation of judicial inquiries abroad.

Police and the State Attorney’s Office have reportedly been carrying out the investigating.

Netanyahu has charged back that “there is no basis to the claims.”
