      Danziger Questioned

      Justice Yoram Danziger of the Supreme Court was questioned by police, on Thursday, about his relationship with Mayor Shlomi Lachiani of Bat Yam, who is suspected of corruption. Danziger represented the mayor and the city when he was in private practice, and the purpose of the investigation is to determine if the work he received from the municipality was a result of the work that he did for the mayor. Similar questions have arisen about other attorneys.

      The questioning took place at a police facility in the Sharon area, north of Tel Aviv, away from the media. It marked the first time a Supreme Court judge has been questioned under warning that he is a suspect. Justice Danziger was interrogated earlier this year but not under warning.
