Danny Dankner to Appeal Sentence


Former chairman of The Bank of  Poalim Danny Dankner is going to file an appeal with the Supreme Court regarding the sentence that was meted out to him.  Dankner entered into a plea bargain after being convicted of breach of public trust, fraud, and misrepresentation of the Bank.  He was sentenced last month to a year in prison and a NIS 1 million fine.

His attorneys are attempting to have his sentence reduced, claiming that it is disproportionate and exceeds the established sentencing norms for this type of crime.
