Supreme Court delays ex-Ramat Gan mayor’s prison sentence pending appeal

Supreme Court Justice Zvi Zilbertal on Wednesday temporarily pushed off the start of former Ramat Gan Mayor Zvi Bar’s five-and-a-half year jail sentence pending Bar’s appeal of his multiple convictions for bribery, money-laundering and other offenses.

Bar had been scheduled to begin his prison sentence on September 24 and the reprieve may only be temporary with Zilbertal saying he had not yet ruled on the fundamental issues.

Bar filed an appeal last week and in parallel filed a motion to stay his sentence pending the decision on the appeal.
