AG likely to indict former head of "Israeli FBI" Arbiv for breach of trust

Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein on Thursday night announced that the prosecution will likely file an indictment against former Lahav 443 police commander Menashe Arbiv, subject to a special pre-indictment hearing. 

A statement from Weinstein’s office said that Arbiv was suspected of having had inappropriately close relations with Rabbi Yoshiyahu Yosef Pinto from 2010-2013, including after the famous rabbi was under investigation for bribery.

Further, the statement said that Arbiv frequently asked personal favors of Pinto and that when Pinto offered him a $60,000 bribe, while Arbiv refused, he failed to properly report the event to those investigating the rabbi.
