Former media mogul Ofer Nimrodi was named on Tuesday as the businessman arrested by Justice Ministry investigators this week on suspicion of being involved in a corruption case involving a high-profile attorney and a police investigator.
Nimrodi, the former owner of Ma’ariv, is suspected of trying to bribe Ch.-Insp. Eran Malka in order to receive information about white collar investigations that Nimrodi had been questioned in. Celebrity attorney Ronel Fisher is suspected of being the broker of the alleged bribery.
On Tuesday, Nimrodi was released to two days house arrest by the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court.
