Court Gives Murderer Credit for Time Served Abroad

The Be'er Sheva' District Court accepted, Tuesday, a petition by Moshe Ivgi, the convicted murderer of taxi driver Derek Roth to lower his sentence by the 1,553 days (about 4.25 years) he was in jail in Argentina before he was extradited to Israel to stand trial.

The ruling is under a stay of execution to give the state time to appeal the decision.
