Petach Tikva Neo-Nazi Convicted in Plea Bargain


The Tel Aviv District Court convicted 23-year-old Dmitri Bogotich in a plea bargain on Thursday for his role as leader of a neo-Nazi gang that operated in Tel Aviv and Petach Tikva between 2005 and 2007. The gang was cited for dozens of race-related attacks during that time span.

Bogotich was able to flee the country to Kyrgyzstan, where he was arrested in the fall of 2010. He was extradited to Israel at the beginning of the year.
