The National Fraud Investigations Unit on Sunday arrested the Mayor of Elad Rabbi Yitzhak Idan on suspicion of bribery, fraud, and money laundering charges, following an undercover operation against the municipality that lasted for several months.

The fraud unit said Sunday that their officers, along with officials from the Tax Authority, carried out searches at the Elad city hall and the homes and offices of Idan and four other suspects they believe were involved in a series of fraud, bribery, and money laundering offenses.

Mayor Idan is also suspected of violating building code regulations.
