Indictment of alleged 1998 Haifa murderer who was extradited from Germany

Eighteen years after he fled Israel to escape a murder charge, the Haifa District Attorney’s Office on Thursday filed an indictment with the city’s district court against a former Haifa resident only one week after he was extradited from Germany.

Gennady Galkin, 43, stayed silent last week at Haifa Magistrate’s Court as he was bombarded with questions about the night 18 years ago when he alleged.y stabbed 25-year-old Technion student Edward Rothberg to death during a fight at a Haifa nightclub.

The only words he had to say during the hearing were “I made a mistake.”
