Senior underworld kingpin Asi Abutbul, who is serving a 13 year jail sentence after becoming the second person in Israeli legal history to be convicted of running an organized crime syndicate last year, was indicted on Tuesday for allegedly threatening prison staff.

Three wardens from the Israel Prison Service complained of threats in the indictment, filed at the Rishon Lezion Magistrate's Court against Abutbul. The incidents took place in the Rimonim prison facility in the Sharon district over the past several months, the indictment said.

The most recent alleged incident took place on November 2, according to the indictment, when warden Na'ava Gil, who serves as a prison appeals committee officer, accompanied Abutbul out of the hall in which the committee met.
