Several Israeli Defense Ministry officials have been suspected of taking bribes from the ministry's contractors, the Ha'aretz daily reported on its website on Monday.

According to the report, police said that six Defense Ministry officials have admitted taking bribes from contractors in return for ensuring those contractors won tenders held by the ministry.

A joint police and Defense Ministry investigation has revealed that three managers and three inspectors of the ministry's administration, maintenance and property management division took bribes in the form of gifts, restaurant meals and renovation work at their homes, Ha'aretz said.

The officials confessed to having promoted tender application of contractors for performing infrastructure and electricity work for the ministry.

Police also questioned three contractors on suspicion of offering bribes, the report said, adding that the case has been passed to the Tel Aviv district attorney, who will prepare indictments.
