Supreme Court Rejects Dan Cohen's Bond Bid


The High Court of Justice rejected, Sunday, the appeal by former judge Dan Cohen of a district court ruling that he be held until the end of legal proceedings against him.

Referring to Cohen's seven years in South America to avoid corruption charges, Judge Tzvi Silbertal wrote that Cohen "has proven that he is ready to pay a heavy personal and economy price to avoid a trial."
