Tsanani to remain in detention pending urgent report

August 29, 2011 11:31

Following the filing of an indictment against her on Monday, the Tel Aviv District Court ruled that Margalit Tsanani is to remain in detention, pending an urgent report by the probation service regarding whether she can be released to house arrest.

State attorney Guy Goren said that while Tsanani did not pose any specific threat to the public, she is accused of having close connections with senior underworld figures.

"Since [Tsanani] is connected with two senior criminal leaders in Israel, she spoke with them, and cooperated with at least one of them to get him to stamp his feet in the heart of the Israeli entertainment business, I could not agree to release her to house arrest," Goren told the court.
