Police raided the home of attorney Ronel Fisher Monday, freezing his bank accounts and seizing his yacht and automobiles. The state attorney is expected to present an indictment against the lawyer and TV personality later this week.
Fisher was arrested in July following a year-long investigation for allegedly selling confidential information to Ashdod Port union leader Alon Hassan about a corruption case against the port. Fisher was released to house arrest soon after, and was re-arrested in April 2015.
The attorney is now being investigated on additional charges of passing along information to criminal suspects regarding their cases in exchange for hundreds of thousands of dollars, and for transferring money to police officers in exchange for the termination of his defendants’ investigations.
