Case 512: State witness says was present at meeting where mob killings were planned

A state witness was reportedly at meetings where underworld figures planned a hit on top mob boss Ze’ev Rosenstein, it emerged in court on Monday.

During a remand hearing for one of the most senior organized crime figures arrested in “Case 512”, a lawyer for the defendant related how his client was brought by police to a confrontation with one of the state witnesses, who said he was present at two meetings where the would-be killers of Rosenstein planned how to eliminate him.

Those alleged meetings – held at a hotel and at the home of one of the defendants – came not long before the December 2003 bombing in Tel Aviv that targeted Rosenstein. The mob boss emerged unscathed from the bombing, which killed three innocent bystanders.
