Assaf Lavi-Tzanani to remain in custody in 'Margot Affair'

August 21, 2011 12:34

As police investigations into what has been dubbed the "Margalit Affair" continue, the Central District Court rejected on Sunday an appeal by Assaf Lavi-Tzanani against last week's lower court decision to extend his remand.

Lavi-Tzanani was arrested alongside his mother, popular singer Margalit Tzanani, and three others, including music producer Yossi Ben David who is suspected of linking Margalit Tzanani with the underworld. Also arrested and remanded were Michael Hazan and Ofer Amar, both allegedly members of the Amir Mullner crime family.

Ben David has since been released to house arrest, but the other four suspects, including Margalit Tzanani, remain in custody as police investigations into the affair continue.
