Israeli police has opened investigations against ex-Mossad chief Yossi Cohen over “a number of issues connected to Cohen,” Channel 13 reported on Sunday.
This follows the recommendations by Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit, who ordered an initial probe into a monetary affair affiliated with Cohen earlier this month.Cohen’s daughter received a $20,000 gift for her wedding from Australian billionaire tycoon James Packer.

He was advised by a Mossad lawyer that accepting the gift was permitted, he said at the time. He later returned the money when the issue became controversial.Cohen has said he regretted that he and his daughter accepted the gift, but he did not think it was problematic at the time in light of how wealthy Packer was and since there was no quid pro quo or request involved.
The police will also look into a suspicion that Cohen relayed information to a woman with whom he had a close relationship during the end of his term as Mossad chief, Channel 13 reported, following a story released by their news site.
However, the main investigation appears to be regarding the gift from Packer.

Packer has become a lightning rod on Israel’s political scene due to a number of probes he has been drawn into. They have harmed his business and led to him admitting he is bipolar and has been involved in controversial conduct on various occasions.Many top Israeli officials on the Right and Left were close to the long-time Israel supporter and did not know of his problematic character at the time, Cohen has said.
