Israeli police questioned Ehud Olmert over allegations of bid rigging in a bank sale.
Police investigators met the prime minister at his Jerusalem residence Tuesday for what was expected to be a daylong interrogation.
The probe centers on the 2005 privatization of Bank Leumi and whether then-Finance Minister Olmert tried to help a friend, an Australian investor, make a bid.
Olmert has denied any wrongdoing in the case.
