Top police commander Ephraim Bracha laid to rest

Thousands of loved ones and top police commanders and public officials paid their respect to National Fraud Squad head Dep.-Ch. Ephraim Bracha at his funeral Monday in the military section of the Modiin cemetery, only a few kilometers from where he was found dead on Sunday of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

Bracha had been in the public spotlight in recent years regarding his lead role in investigating a number of high profile cases, but the eulogies at his funeral seemed to center around his hand in bringing down Rabbi Yoshiyahu Yosef Pinto.

A former top police official Yoav Segolovich told the crowd that in the case of Pinto, Bracha had had “to choose between your Rabbi and your country – you did not hesitate” to choose your country.
