Crime Boss's Sons Won't be Freed from Jail for Funeral


The Prisons Service decided, Friday, not to free the sons of crime figure Charlie Abutbul to attend their father's funeral. The senior Abutbul was found shot in his home on Thursday, before he was scheduled to enter prison, and police are investigating whether his death was suicide, an accident or homicide.

Interviewed by Israel Defense Forces Radio, the sons' attorney said that with all due respect to the security considerations, they should have been allowed to attend the funeral.
