Police have decided to indict former Bank Hapoalim chairman Danny Dankner for bribery, on Thursday.

The bank's CEO, Zion Keinan, will be tried for fraud and breach of trust.

In August, Dankner was suspected of bribery and tax evasion in connection with the Holyland affair, in which he allegedly paid NIS 1.5 million in bribes to then-Israel Lands Administration head Yaakov Efrati, to ensure that industrial land he owned in Atlit could be converted into profitable real estate developments.
