The Justice Ministry announced on Monday that a Tel Aviv Magistrates' Court judge has been investigated by the police on suspicion of evading taxes over a period of eight years.
The tax authorities began to suspect Judge Dan Mor, who was appointed a senior judge in the Tel Aviv Magistrates' Court in April 2010, was possibly evading taxes after a random audit was conducted into his son's tax returns.
That audit revealed that between 2000-2007, revenue from a rental property owned by Mor was reported as his son's income, despite the fact that the income had been Mor's.
As a result of Mor's son reporting the income, Mor's own taxes were reduced by NIS 211,000.
