Appeal Against Returning Motti Malka to Kiryat Malachi


A court hearing is scheduled for Wednesday morning in the appeal filed by prosecutors against Tuesday's lifting of restrictions on Mayor Motti Malka of Kiryat Malachi. The restrictions were imposed after Malka and two other officials were arrested in May on suspicion of abusing their authority to coerce a female employee to have affairs with them over the course of several months. They were also accused of giving and receiving bribes.

Malka returned to Kiryat Malachi, following Tuesday's court decision.
