Mob bosses arraigned in major organized crime case

Crime kingpins Yitzhak and Meir Abergil and 18 other associates were arraigned by the Tel Aviv District Court on Wednesday for a range of murders and failed attempts on the life of rival gangster Ze’ev Rosenstein, including one in Tel Aviv in December 2003 that left three bystanders dead and dozens injured.

Other top criminals indicted included Avi Ruhan and Moti Hassin – both mob bosses in their own right and close associates of the Abergils.

The investigation, known as Case 512, covered a global drug trafficking, money laundering and tax evasion network run by the Abergil family when they were on top of the Israeli underworld, mainly from 2002-2006.
