Gur Finkelstein, who was being held in prison during his trial on charges that he hired hit men to kill several people, was charged on Thursday of obstruction of justice for trying to order a hit against another prisoner, Israel Radio reported.

Finkelstein, and his father, who was also charged, allegedly tried to hire an undercover policeman to carry out the hit, according to the report.

The real estate lawyer is being tried for allegedly hiring hitmen to kill his ex-wife, her boyfriend, and a Tel Aviv city official, as well as to blow up a mosque and the Scientologist church in Jaffa.
