Etti Alon to Face Parole Board, May be Released Today


The Parole Board of the Israeli Prison Service may release Etti Alon from prison on Wednesday. The Parole Board was supposed to rule on her appeal for release last week, but pushed the ruling off until today.

Alon was sentenced to 17 years in prison in 2003 for embezzling NIS 250 million from the Trade Bank, to help her brother Ofer Maximov, who was a compulsive gambler and owed a lot of money on the grey market.
