State indicts crime boss Abergil, associates for NIS 51 money-laundering

The Tel Aviv District Attorney’s Office on Sunday filed an indictment with the Tel Aviv District Court against crime boss Yitzhak Abergil and a range of other defendants and companies for a scheme in which they moved as much as NIS 51 million in public funds from a public company to Abergil’s interests, including a casino in Romania.

In March, the district attorney’s office had announced that it would likely file the indictment, but had added in a statement that it would grant Abergil and the others a special pre-indictment hearing before filing the case.

Most indictments do not allow pre-indictment hearings, which are usually reserved for top public officials and other high-profile complex cases.
