Police recommended to state prosecutors on Monday that former Bank Hapoalim chairman Danny Dankner be indicted for bribery and tax evasion in connection with the Holyland affair.

Dankner is suspected of paying a million and half shekels in bribes to then-Israel Lands Administration head Yaakov Efrati, to ensure that industrial land he owned in Atlit could be converted into profitable real estate developments – dubbed by police as the “salt deal” since Dankner owned Israel Salt Industries during the time of the alleged transaction.

Earlier on Monday, police recommended former prime minister Ehud Olmert be indicted for accepting a bribe in the Holyland case.
