Panama Extradites Fraud Suspect to Israel

Panama extradited fraud suspect Yohad Cohen to Israel, Thursday. He is expected to land in Israel Thursday evening.

Cohen is suspected of drawing more than 100,000 shekels from Israeli banks by presenting phony identity papers to get release grants for soldiers. He fled the country after questioning by police, before an indictment was filed. The Panamanian authorities arrested Cohen about two months ago, after Israeli police put out an international warrant for his arrest.
