For the third time in two years, Ronen Ginsburg, CEO of Israeli construction company Danya Cebus, was questioned by police Wednesday — this time in connection with the investigation against MK David Bitan, the former coalition Knesset whip.
Ginsburg was ordered to remain in custody for six days Wednesday, after police raided Danya Cebus offices early in the morning and detained him for questioning by detectives of the Lahav 433 national crime unit. Police claim Danya Cebus paid hundreds of thousands of shekels in brides to Bitan when he was deputy mayor of Rishon Letzion.
Officials also alleged Wednesday that the closely held supermarket chain Hetzi Hinam covered part of Bitan’s debts in exchange for reductions in municipal taxes and fees in Rishon Lezion. The chain declined to comment.
