The owner of a construction firm has been ordered detained for four days on suspicion that he bribed attorney Ronel Fisher to receive information about a covert police investigation into him more than a year ago.
The owner of the B. Yair construction company, Yair Biton, was arrested Sunday upon returning from abroad. Biton, who was ordered detained by the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court, is also suspected of facilitating a bribe.
The covert investigation — which was made public in May 2014 when Biton first was arrested — was into suspicions that the company had transferred 60 million shekels ($15.5 million) to the Yitzhak Abergil crime family to help the Abergils launder money.
