Police Claim Death Threat to Kiryat Malachi Mayor

Police in Kiryat Malachi arrived Tuesday at the home of a woman who has filed a complaint against Mayor Motti Malka and took her husband’s handgun. Police said they had received reports that the man was planning to harm Malka, who his wife says exploited his seniority in their shared city office to coerce her into a sexual relationship.

Investigators in the national fraud unit expressed fury over the police operation, accusing officers of pressuring the complainant’s family.
