The State Attorney's Office announced on Tuesday that they are considering indicting former Bank Hapoalim chairman Dan Dankner, subject to a hearing, on charges of fraudulently obtaining a loan from Bank Hapoalim.

The Economic Division of the State Attorney's Office informed Dankner's attorneys on Monday that they are considering filing an indictment against Dankner on counts of fraudulent receipt and carrying out actions prohibited by the Money Laundering Law.

In response, Dankner's lawyers - Yoram Raved, Joseph Benkel, Ruth Litvak and Navot Tel-Tzur - said Dankner strongly rejected the allegations against him.
