A top legal adviser to the municipalities of Rishon Lezion and Rehovot took bribes in order to advance the business interests of his associates, police said Sunday, in announcing their intention to charge him for bribery.

According to the police LAHAV 433 unit, while he served as an outside legal consultant for the two cities, attorney Roi Bar took bribes from a series of associates in order to lobby on their behalf in meetings of the local planning committees.

Police on Sunday pointed out what they described as a severe conflict of interest, in that Bar advocated in city planning meetings on behalf of his own clients, and also allegedly took bribes to help other associates win construction tenders.
