Jerusalem - A leading Israeli opposition lawmaker has launched a campaign calling for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be investigated for corruption.

Erel Margalit of the Zionist Union party said on Sunday he aims to get the Supreme Court to have Netanyahu interrogated.

At issue is a scandal over reports that Netanyahu's personal attorney represented a German company involved in a $1.5bn sale of submarines to Israel, raising questions about the prime minister's possible involvement. Reports later emerged that Iran, Israel's arch enemy, has a stake in that company.

Margalit said "This is corruption at its worst."

The campaign clip shows images portraying Netanyahu as living lavishly and newspaper headlines about scandals.
