The Justice Ministry’s Police Investigations Department filed an indictment on Wednesday against police officer Ahron Kadosh for bribery, breach of trust, abuse of public powers and obstruction of justice.

Kadosh, 50, from Acre, was an intelligence officer in the Zevulun Police Station, near Haifa.According to the indictment, filed with the Haifa District Court, from 2004 to 2014 Kadosh had complete access to police computer databases and human intelligence sources.

He bartered information and a promise to avoid enforcement on various criminals, or to warn them of an operation to arrest them, in exchange for tens of thousands of shekels, as well as free sexual services.

Sometimes, according to the indictment, Kadosh falsely told the criminals that he had helped them avoid police enforcement actions that were not taking place.

In one instance, Kadosh allegedly received several thousand shekels from a gambling establishment for various kinds of protection.

He also supposedly reviewed police files for private information of third parties that he would provide to people close to him, though this was not related to performing his duties and violated the third parties’ privacy rights.
