Fifteen suspects arrested over the past few weeks on suspicion of linking up with drug runners in Panama to import 108 kilograms of cocaine into Israel will be indicted at the Petah Tikva District Court on Friday. "The indictment sheet is the product of a long investigation conducted by the Central District's Central Unit and accompanied by attorneys Alon Tankaji and Yael Zalig of the Central District state prosecutors," a statement released by the state prosecution said on Thursday. Among those indicted are two suspects said by police to be part of a crime organization headed by Amir Mulner, who is serving time for an unrelated illegal firearm possession conviction.
