Moti Posloshani, a Colonel (res.) and a senior official in the Herzliya municipality, and wife Dominique were named Tuesday as the couple convicted last week of stealing mementos from Auschwitz.

Posloshani returned to Israel Monday and resigned from his role with the Herzliya municipality.

Explaining his actions, Posloshani said that he took rusted cutlery that he found in the mud with the intention of bringing the items back to Israel and perhaps giving them to Yad Vashem.

The couple were sentenced in Poland to a two-year suspended jail sentence and a NIS 5,000 fine each.
