Indictments likely against 3 city leaders

Indictments could be filed shortly against three municipality heads after police announced Wednesday that they had gathered evidence backing up allegations against Ramat Gan Mayor Yisrael Zinger, Zichron Ya’acov local authority head Eli Abutbul and Hatzor Haglilit local authority head Shimon Suissa.

The most prominent of the three cases involves Zinger – who was arrested in December 2014 along with five other suspects on suspicion of fraud, breach of trust and money laundering. The Ramat Gan mayor and his associates allegedly established a series of favors and kickbacks benefiting those who helped his October 2013 municipal election campaign.
