Former head of the Heftsiba construction company Boaz Yona, who was convicted of swindling real estate customers, was to be released as part of a massive prisoner release Thursday. Yona was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2008 after signing a plea bargain that also included NIS 8 million to his victims.
