The Police Investigations Department asked a Jerusalem court Wednesday to extend the detention of attorney Ronel Fisher until the end of his wide-ranging bribery trial. The court is expected to rule on the request next week.
“This is an extreme man who acts without limits, and the complaints (against him) continue to stream in to us,” said attorney Keren Altman, who is in charge of the Justice Ministry investigation alongside attorney Liora Nahon.
Altman told Jerusalem District Court that the probation department had conducted an examination into Fisher and decided that under no circumstances should he be released. Fisher’s attorney objected, saying his client was not a danger to the public and if he had wanted to flee the country, he could have done so a long time ago.
