Justice Danziger on Investigative Leave


Justice Yoram Danziger of the Supreme Court informed High Court President Dorit Beinisch, Monday morning, that he was taking leave immediately to allow the completion of his case.

Police have asked Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein for permission to question Danziger under caution as a suspect in connection with allegations of corruption against Mayor Shlomi Lahiani of Bat Yam. Police questioned the justice in April about his representation of Lahiani and the municipality when he was in private practice.
