The police are investigating allegations that well-known Tel Aviv lawyer Haim Stanger hired a client with a police record to harm a neighbor with whom he had a feud. Stanger was remanded in custody last week and the court on Sunday agreed to extend it until Tuesday.
During the hearing, police said they were also investigating suspicions that Stanger wanted to hire the same client to harm Ramat Gan Family Court lawyer Tova Sivan. The two also have a longstanding feud.
Stanger's lawyer, Avigdor Feldman, told The Jerusalem Post the entire story had been blown out of all proportion.
