Police: Charge former Bar head, senior Meuhedet officials

November 15, 2011 16:03

Police said Tuesday that evidence exists to charge senior officials from the Meuhedet Health Fund with corruption following the completion of an extensive investigation, and recommended that the former head of the Israel Bar Association, attorney Yuri Guy-Ron, also be charged in connection with the affair.

Guy-Ron, who owns a marketing company together with his wife, is suspected of receiving hundreds of thousands of shekels from Meuhedet without providing a service in return.

"We found evidence that Mr. Guy-Ron committed offenses [while head of the IBA] relating to corruption, conspiracy to commit a crime, and aggravated fraud," police said in an official statement.
