Kiryat Malachi Mayor Moti Malka appealed to shorten his remand on Thursday after police detained him on rape and corruption charges, Israel Radio reported.

Malka - who was arrested on Wednesday and is to be held in custody for 8 days - made the appeal at the Petah Tikva District Court.

Police suspect Malka repeatedly raped, sodomized and sexually abused a female employee of the municipality, in an investigation that shocked both local residents and the country.
