      Report: Arbiv will Apparently Have to Leave Post

      Commander Menashe Arbiv of the Lahav 433 Israel Police unit to fight national-scale crimes and corruption will apparently have to leave his post, according to a Sunday evening report by Channel 2 Television. The police are investigating allegations that Arbiv was unduly influenced by Rabbi Yoshiahu Pinto, who is also under investigation.

      Earlier it was reported that a meeting between Rabbi Pinto's lawyers and prosecutors was cancelled. The meeting reportedly was to discuss what the state had to offer Pinto for evidence he submitted.
