Promotion for Police Officer Who Exposed Corruption


Israeli Police Chief Superintendent Efraim Ehrlich will be promoted to the rank of Commander eight years after he exposed the "Perinian Brothers" scandal, reports Israel Radio. At the time, his rank was frozen.

Ehrlich will be on loan to the Fire and Rescue Service Department.

The agreement was reached after State Comptroller Joseph Shapira intervened with the help of  the Ometz watchdog organization.

The corruption brought to light by Ehrlich led to the formation of an investigative committee headed by a Court Justice and to the resignation of then Police Chief Karadi.
