Indictment nears in crooked cop and celebrity lawyer corruption case

The state has finished its case against former star attorney Ronel Fisher and a former police detective who allegedly fed him information in exchange for bribes, and an indictment is expected by the end of the week, the Justice Ministry said Monday.

The Jerusalem Magistrate’s court held an additional remand extension for Fisher and Chief Inspector Eran Malka on Monday, and ordered Fisher kept in jail until Friday and Malka until Thursday.

At Fisher’s hearing on Monday, Noa Limor, the representative for the Justice Ministry’s unit for investigating police described Malka as “a corrupt cop that oversaw some of the most sensitive cases handled by the Israel police”, and that Fisher “worked in a manipulative way to extort people under investigation and give them information in exchange for money.”
